My 2.5 year old thinks it so funny to run away from us, whether it be in the parking lot, at the zoo, in the grocery or in our apartment complex. I have tried a variety of things but after a while they seem to wear off. Does anybody else have this problem or have any tips on how to get her to stick close by?

I always told my daughter "hand on car" and she would know she had to stick to the car which gave me time to find my keys or whatever it is i had to do. Idk if what i did was right but i also told my daughter before walking outside that cars are big and they can smash you and make you get hurt and have to go to the hospital. Sometimes kids need a little pep talk each time you go out especially if you already know the problem and eventually their minds will know cars are dangerous and I don't want to get hurt. Once you make that habit of training their minds you wont have to remind them anymore. for the grocery store put them in the basket to sit until they can prove they will listen let walking around the grocery store be a privilege, if they run then it's back in the cart.
