It may seem simple, but some runners can be completely oblivious that anyone else is around them. Get these 4 basic running etiquette principles right and avoid becoming the brunt of someone else’s irritation.
Warn before passing. If you’re approaching someone from behind, alert them to your presence with a cough or verbal heads-up like ‘Good morning!’ or ‘Passing on your right!’
Don’t run more than two abreast. It’s not okay to take up the width of the path or shoulder. When cars approach, proceed to single file.
Look before you expel. If you need to spit, blow, or hawk, first make sure the area around you is clear of others.
Move over, then stop. To avoid collisions, move off to the side before stopping at a water station, to tie your shoe, or to take a walk break.
