Running with my Road ID Sidekick ID

Disclaimer: I received a Road ID Sidekick ID to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review, find, and write race reviews!

If you are a runner, how do you ensure you stay safe when going out for a run?  As a female, I usually think of safety as avoiding bodily injury (think dog bite, physical attack, etc). I will be honest, I normally don’t think about a medical emergency or accident when I run.  So, when I was asked to test Road ID products, I thought, “What do I have to lose?”. I already use the Road ID app, so it also makes sense that I might want to use an ID.

img_3342I jumped onto the Road ID website and looked at all of the options they have; I was able to choose between selecting a Wrist ID or a Sidekick ID. I ended up choosing the Sidekick ID for myself. (Although the site stated “Sidekick ID for Fitbit + Garmin”, I measured the wrist band on my Coros Pace watch and found it was the same measurements as the Garmin.) I also ordered a Silicone Wrist ID for my oldest son. He has a nut allergy and plays travel sports, so I thought it might be a nice “extra” accessory for him to wear.

I was notified of shipping with some really fun emails from the company. When I received the packages, I was blown away by the personalized touches! BONUS: The company is located in Covington, Kentucky, right in my own backyard.


I immediately took out the Road IDs and set up an emergency response profile (ERP) for both myself and my son.  It only took a few minutes to activate the IDs with the serial and pins.  I loved being able to put all of my emergency contacts, medical history, and other information in this secure place in case emergency responders or medical teams need it. If you are wondering about the security of the ERP system or how it works, you can check out their FAQs here.

In short, I love the mission of this company as well as its products.  The Sidekick ID fits seamlessly onto my watch band and I do not notice it at all during activities.  My son loves the look of his Wrist ID; the silicone band is “cool” and kids at school ask him about it, which makes for a good opener to educate them about nut/food allergies. Best of all, I have some peace of mind knowing if I am alone and unconscious, the Road ID will do the talking for us.

Are you ready to give Road ID a try? They have lots of cool products and accessories. You can use discount code “BIBCHAT20” for 20% of your purchase of a Sidekick ID or Wrist ID through 11/25/19.
