Be Safe & Be Seen.

It goes without saying that your safety is priority.

If you go running before or after work during the winter, it’s likely you’ll be running in the dark.

When running after dark, it’s essential that you’re visible to other people, particularly motorists.

Your clothes should be reflective or a bright, light colour, such as white or fluorescent yellow. Don’t wear dark clothes as drivers may not see you.

A fluorescent bib that can be worn over your running clothes is also perfect for running after dark.

Stick to well-lit areas and avoid running anywhere you don’t feel completely safe.

Dressing appropriately for the weather conditions will help ensure you enjoy your run, please take a moment to read this article to best prepare yourself for winter running.
