I've also heard cram alert are good if you're only in the uk. I've heard good things about roadid

Thanks very much to everyone who has provided helpful details. I'm on the case!

There was a company called personal ID at one of the races I was at this year. I also want to get one of these! What info did everyone put on? I'm a bit wary of putting my address in case I leave it in a gym bag with my house keys or something, but what else did everyone have written?

name, date of birth  and post code.... More than enough for the emergency services to identify me

Road ID for me too

I'm thinking of buying several of the little barrel things sold to put on dog collars, put the essential details on a slip of paper inside  - that way I can put one on each pair of running shoes.

@Dave/others with IDs - do you include any phone numbers on there? I've seen lots of 'examples' with

Spouse: xxxxxx
Brother: xxxxxx

but i'm the same as Dancing with spikes and wary about leaving something with my details on it

@Emmy_H - my RoadID has my name + DOB + Town, my girlfriend's name & number (incase a paramedic fancies getting lucky), my Dad's name & number, abbreviated medical info (NKA, NKDA, NoMedX) and the following note re. treatment in the event of accident: If found, treat with beer.

Thanks Intermanaut - that's great. Have you put "please stop my garmin" under "in event of accident

24/09/2012 at 16:26

@Emmy_H - no, but I have read of a bloke who has "If found, please pause my GPS".

Lol! I've been thinking of which tag to get for when I go running and I love the idea of the Cram Alert but because I travel internationally so often (which is where I feel where I need it most) - it's lacking there so i think i'm going to choose RoadID

Yes mine has wife's number daughters number the same medical abbreviations and at the bottom "Pain is temporary"

Universalmedicalid.co.uk have some nice options.

Use the RoadID myself, have never had anyone need to make used of it so far, but I dont leave the house without it.

Just ordered from RoadID; can't run yet due to health - but want to be ready!
