Who would they call if they found me?
A recent event with me and another with a friend has led me to think about ID when you're out running. At the moment, I run with water (if required) and a set of keys. If I was found unconscious then no-one would know who I was, or who to contact. I'm thinking I should get one of those keyfobs that have a bit of paper onto which I could write my name and a contact number.
Any other suggestions?
What about the Reebok Cram Alert ID. My friend is a member and has an ID wristband with an emergency number to phone.
I don't think putting your name on your keys is a good idea so something like a cram tag would be better.
I admit I don't bother though - I always think if I don't turn up eventually someone will come looking for me and if I'm dead or in hospital they'll find me then.
Why spend £16? Do it yourself!
I carry a waterproof white plastic card in my pocket (same size as a credit card) with my name, address, OH's contact number and parents number printed on it.
You never know what's going to happen out there.
I carry my mobile phone so no doubt they will trace me through that
you can get one of those cheap cat/dog container i.d. things which have a scrolled up piece of paper inside.

All these are a great idea if the emergency services know where to look. Anyone know their procedure when they find a casualty..??
Just write all the info on the "full size" shrinkie. Shove it in the oven and let it "shrink" to size. Put a couple of holes in it and tie it to your shoe laces.
