On June 9th and 10th, 2023, Run Secured will offer five sessions of their Outdoor Personal Security (OPS) Course in Portland. The course is designed for women (14+) who exercise (run, walk, hike) alone outdoors and empowers participants to avoid, escape & survive assault scenarios.
The course was originally designed by a former CIA Officer for his wife who is passionate about running. Unlike typical women’s self-defense classes, the OPS Course addresses the specific threats women solo exercising face.
Participants learn route planning & variation, how to tell if you’re being followed, leveraging help from a remote support person, presenting yourself as the hardest target possible, as well as fighting techniques.
The principles draw from the course developers’ experience & training in personal & physical security, surveillance detection, armed & unarmed combat, as well as survival.
