I would like to get an ID waistband for safety whilst running so that my next of kin can be contacted if needed (hopefully not!). Can anyone recommend any companies that do these that they may have used? Many thanks.

Ice Tags are another option. Just a simple plastic tag with your info on it and if you're a Parkrunner, you can also get your barcode printed on the back as well.

I got a road if after being knocked off my bike by a hit and run driver on a deserted road last year ( bit shook up but fine ).

I never run or cycle without it, just hope it is never needed. Great service, arrived from the states in less than a week.

Road ID, it arrived very quickly considering it's a US based company!

Got aluminium dog tag with name, d.o.b, blood type, ice info engraved on it. Cheap as chips.

+1 For Road ID .  Great service, easy to use website, many varieties

The only (slight) issue I have with these, is the permanance of them.

If you change (mobile) phone numbers, for example, you have to replace the engraved/printed ones

I know mines not as immediately obvious, but I wear a SOS Talisman

http://www.sostalisman.co.uk/brochure.html  (standard one, top left)

The paper strip can be updated (comes in packs of 5?)
Granted, it's not as tough as dog-tags, but possibly an easier proposition to wear '24/7'??? (for normal 'day-2-day' activities, rather than just training/racing??)

gosport ID 

sign up to this free site http://earndit.com and link it to your garmin/runkeeper etc

once you have done about 3 runs you will have enough points to get a free ID band from the vouchers you earn,


the rest of the vouchers i found worthless, but it was worth signing up for that, cost me £5 postage thats all.

Another for Road ID

Very quick to send, normally within a week.

I went for the cram alert as it does not need replacing when I move or numbers are changed and you talk to medical help rather than a possibly hysterical next of kin taking the pressure off of the poor sole who is assisting you.

Road ID fab service, i now have a range of colours!

+1 for Road ID... The last couple of years I've bought a new one each year and inscribed it with my "focus race" and the date on, i.e. this year the band is Green for Dragon's Back

Less than £20, shipped from the USA in under a week as others have said

I use a dogtag, but I always thought it would be good if the likes of Garmin included it on the strap of the watch or the heart rate chest strap.
