Can a woman jog in a public place? At night? What about running, when in a rush?


A. May a woman go jogging in a public place (i.e Eastern Pkwy) during the day?
B. Does this differ from jogging at night (when there are fewer people around)?
C. If a woman needs to get somewhere quickly, is it permissible to run during the day? Night?


It would be appropriate not to go jogging in a public area, for running draws attention to oneself which is the opposite of Tznius. 1 Jogging in a private area or at night (in places where the streets are basically empty) should be fine provided that it is safe to be jogging in those areas during those times.

  1. See Shu’t Shevat Halevi 10 Page 29-30 who forbids riding a bike in public and seemingly the same would apply here.
