SHE may look "pretty dangerous" with her tattoos, but Ruby Rose says "even I wouldn't run by myself at night".Rose, a television personality and DJ, is an ambassador for Australia's first ever women-only night race, designed to provide a safe environment for women to reclaim the streets at night through running.The inaugural event will take place on May 3, and thousands of women are expected to complete the 13-kilometre race, which will start and finish at the Royal Hall of Industries and follow a course through Centennial Park. The route will be peppered with DJs and audiovisual entertainment.Rose said women were often afraid to go for a run alone at night."The Nike She Runs The Night will be a visual reminder that women deserve to feel safe to exercise at night," she said. "Imagine what it will look like with a few thousand women running down the street. Men will either think One Direction is back in town or stop and be impressed by the seriously fit women."Go to Facebook.com/nikesheruns for information about registration, which closes tonight.
