Running with keys

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

could you please take a few minutes and help us out with our university project? We are trying to develop a comfortable storage device for keys while running.

This link will lead you to our short survey: http://www.survio.com/survey/d/N9D4S1G5O2D9T7J1S

If you have any other comments or suggestions, please don't hesitate to post them here.

Thank you very much in advance!

Tying a key pouch to the shoe does not seem like an original idea. I remember seeing a similar product somewhere. 

Frankly, I wouldn't trust tying my keys to my running shoe. However secure it looks, it is always possible that it may come loose when you are running. And worse it may happen without you realising it. 

I tried many different ways to store my keys when I go for my run. Wrist pouch. Waist pouch. Hold in hand etc. 

In the end, the simplest solution is still the best. Now I just put the keys in the inner pockets of my shorts. Best of all, it cost nothing! :crazysmile:

I drop my house keys in my mailbox and keep the mailbox key in my running shorts inner pocket during running.

I am one of those who had lost house keys when my small pouch is tied to my shoes laces... now I am still using the pouch but I hold it in my hand... it used to look secure until the portion securing the shoe laces got a little loose... It's just slotted in actually and I innocently believe that given its brand, it should perform... well lesson learnt... now I always put in the hand held pouch and hold in my hand.... the most trusted method... I feel..

Use running shots with one pocket is risky cos it may have a hole and your key slip out during run. Jus something to be aware of

I don't carry key during my run. I put my key hide in somewhere that nobody can find it. Carrying key in running is bad coz keys are sharp object,

I just need one single key that is the padlock to my gate. Told my family member not to shut the door inside thus a single key will allow me to go into my house. I put it inside the inner pocket of my running short and I did not encounter any problem.

nowadays I always hide a $1 coin in this inner pocket of shorts so that I can reward myself with a cold drink later on... trying out to see if this pocket is reliable if I were to put my keys in (only single key, if want to have more keys with key ring, I suggest not to place them in this pocket)... so far still ok..

Put your key or keys in a key pounch, Size should be roughly the same as an energy gel. Nowadays most running shorts are design with a zipper pocket for two or more gels. Should suffice.

energy gel is thicker so its harder to fell out... some shorts now have an "overlid" to cover the pocket to prevent items from dropping out too...

Quick tip: If you need to run with more than 1 keys (like me), use a rubberband to tie the keys together. In this way, it's a need bundle and you eliminate the annoying sound of the keys juggling when you run. 

If you are an excessive sweater and dun want to get your keys wet, just put them in a small resealable plastic bag (like those they put your race medals or medicine in)

same Bro Lonewolf, I always use rubber band to tie the keys together.. it is still the best to run with no keys...

any sound or constant "hitting" of skin feel?

I think they are quite good. They dun last long (the elastic band becomes inelastic after about a yr of usage) but in term of functionality, they worked as advertised.

well... it's high capital cost leh....

I see Qoo10 has them in the low $100++ minus installation. Personally I think it's worth it for a long term hands free solution, not just for running, but for your daily keyless lifet style.

that is true.... I would prefer someone who can install and provide me with the warranty thus have to go to shops... which I didn't see anything close to low $100++ that you stated in Qoo10...

    • Now that you are excited about what is ahead of 2020, uncle shall end last post in this forum with this local video production which have inspired uncle to Run Around Singapore. Enjoy.       Wishing all, your families, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  End
    • my dear @Lady Ice, let uncle explains simply... Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda The Abbott World Marathon Majors is a series consisting of currently 7 of the largest and most renowned marathons in the world. Wanda Group or Dalian Wanda (Chinese: 大连万达), is a Chinese multinational conglomerate based in Beijing. China's Wanda buys Ironman Triathlon owner for $650 million. Wanda 大连万达 markets and promotes those cities that are in this exclusive club. IAAF provides the sanctioned Road Race Labels (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum) Rules and Regulations to any country which want to host must meet the strict selection trial required as entry to the Abbott World Marathon Majors. Invitation to World ranking runners must be regional, not continental only. Singapore, being having the financial resources, has the advantage. The disadvantage is the size of participants. So to increase the size and qualifying runners, she needs to invite also regional runners to participate. Expect STPB (like what @lonewolf said) to aggressively promote the Hub of Marathons.  
    • Ok - so am old lah 😛 - been  on this forum for far too long...
    • Saga 1: The SA's internal carding system - which allocates athletes up to $1,200 per month based on various criteria - had expired month without the necessary follow-up. (info: https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/officials-say-track-body-must-sort-out-disputes)   Saga 2: Against paying Singapore Athletics share of award money  (info: https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/football/soh-against-paying-sa-share-of-award)   Summary: Soh (did not take part), Michelle Sng (did not win a Gold Medal), and Shanti Veronica Pereira ( Collected 2 Bronzes), the 2 Sagas will not affect Shanti Veronica Pereira because she can stay on with the $1,200 monthly allowance, happily with her Coach, and she gets her 2-Bronze Award for her Performance (and surely gladly give 20% to SA). SA will be delighted with the 2-year Excellence Peak Performance Program till 2021. The greatest loser in the Sagas is Soh because he will not have both - $1,200 monthly allowance, and already based on his PB, he could have collect a Gold Medal from 2019 SEA Games with an Award of $10,000. Even if he will be unwilling to share with the 20% to SA. SA only loss "$2,000" but save $1,200 monthly allowance for Soh for the next 2 years (savings of $28,800). SA -+$28,600 vs Soh -$10,000 - $28,800 (2020-2021) As for Michelle, she already said she wants to retire in 2017, but the surprise Gold Medal on that year makes her a defending Champion. Pain, Injury and Tears - for every jump. Plus she has reached beyond 30, and to be family-focused should be her entitlement in life. High Jump has given her a sporting life and to announce her honourable retirement from the call of Nation. It will be expected. SA - which has been controversial from the core. Change the whole SA? How many times have SA changed? Life as Usual. No change is better then to Change. Whatever. Marathon has been a Gold Medal for SEA Games. We will surely make a comeback. Without SA, marathoning is the only key spark in Athletics that even without $1,200 monthly allowance, Mok and Soh can be regional champions. So you know what Mok's Saga with SA, "Uncle, you say lah, the $1,200 monthly allowance, don't have money how to go overseas for marathon qualification mark closer to SEA Games, use personal paylah!" Now, everyone knows what is SAga is about right? "Money Not Enough, how to run overseas Marathon races." "What I win, is all Mine not yours, SA."  "SA :  gain $28,600 vs Soh minus $10,000 minus $28,800 (2020-2021)" "Ashley Liew demands S$120,000 in damages from teammate Soh over ‘false’ claims about sportsmanship act still outstanding."   Uncle wishes Soh Gets Lots of Money for the year of the Metal Rat (2020).    
    • The shorter answer may be there are many IAAF races but only 7 WMM (at the moment). So its a combination of scarcity and prestige.  And one more thing. STPB no more P liao. STPB was established in 1964. Nowadays it just STB (since 1997!)
