Each customizable, identification band is of high quality, perfect for any outdoor adventurer, not just for runners.

We've taken ours through running races, triathlons, obstacle course races, snowshoeing, and multi-day races. It has lasted for years. We haven't even had to replace the band, let alone the customizable plate.

Running Equipment

barkley fall classicMy Road ID accompanied me to (and through) the Barkley Fall Classic.

There are certain pieces of running equipment that we couldn't imagine leaving the house without.

For one, we'd be lost (figuratively) without our running shoes. Our barefoot running friends may think differently about that.

When we run at night, we're never without our reflective running vest and a headlamp.

And, if we're rucking, we're never without our GR1, what we consider the best rucksack for the activity.

Our Road ID is just one more piece to the running equipment puzzle, and we consider it an absolute necessity.

Hopefully, we'll never need it in an emergency.

Though, if one ever occurs, we'll be that much more confident that those responding will be that much better able to help because of this additional level of preparation and security.

Get One For Yourself Or A Friend

We'd highly encourage your investment in a Road ID for yourself, or for a friend.

It is a thoughtful way to show how much you care.
