Running in the Winters

Running in the Winters

Winter is the peak season for fun activities like skiing, snowboarding, ice climbing, ice skating, curling, and sledding. But some people prefer to pursue running during this time.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

When running in the wintertime:

  • Wear long-sleeve tees or light jacket, and gloves.
  • Take care of your clothing layers so that you can sweat without it bothering you in the cold.
  • Wear MicroSpikes if there is snow.
  • Carry a water bottle, one that doesn't leak.

If you choose to run during winter: 

  • Avoid high-snow areas or routes with parallel streets, as it can expose you to sudden cold. 
  • Avoid areas with street puddles, and do not run near the transit route of buses, which can splash you with cold water suddenly.
