Being out on the road in South Africa, is, at the best of times, risky. Don’t be an easy target while training.

Take action:


Train with someone else – preferably more than one person; vary your route and your training time every day; wear reflective clothing so that you’re visible to motorists; carry pepper spray or one of the many anti-mugging devices on the market; do a course in basic self-defence; and train with your dog – a large one.
