Ever since last month’s attacks on female joggers in south Adelaide, Bec & Cosi have committed to shining a light on the safety of women on our streets when it’s dark.  

After speaking with the women who were assaulted, both told us that they hadn’t been outside for a jog since, but why should we have to change our habits because of the horrible actions of others?  

Speaking with listeners about what we can do about this, a few people suggested running with friends or groups, which we love!  

Check out this list below of organised running groups around town supplied to us by a listener Michelle from North Brighton!

Everyone has the right to walk or run on our streets and feel safe. There is no reason to make someone else feel unsafe.

This is why Bec & Cosi are calling on all women of Adelaide, and the men who stand with them, to Reclaim the Run!

On Thursday June 6th we are hosting a free event for the public -  a 3 kilometre run to support women, meeting at the Elder Park Rotunda at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.

You can run or walk – whatever your fitness level, you are welcome.
