Running in the Dark

It’s that time of the year to push back the clocks!

The days will begin to feel much shorter and the nights will feel extremely long. If you like to run outdoors, this is the perfect opportunity to practice safe running/training for the winter season!
Wearing high-visibility gear is an absolute must when training outdoors. It’s beneficial when running by a main street or close to other runners, you will be seen and won’t be a surprise to others when you’re zipping past them on the pathway. Here are some ideas on what to wear to prepare yourself for those long winter nights:

Of course, it’s necessary wearing gloves and a hat when running as it is walking around town, even more, when it’s high-vis. The Craft ADV Lumen Hybrid Glove, although during the day, it might not look like high-visibility gear, when the light shined on it — the gloves glows up!

This reflective glove complements well with the Brooks Notch Thermal Beanie. You will be ready to go for the next run-in-the-dark workout in this snug beanie, as it features 3M™ Scotchlite™ Carbon Black Stretch reflectivity.  However, to be fully seen, you would want to wear either of these items along with a high-visible vest or jacket.

Now that you’re aware of what to wear in order to be seen, always make sure to always see what’s ahead of you. We highly recommend training in high-visibility places with enough street lights to see what’s ahead of you.

*Also it is an uncertain time for all types of runners, and running groups are at a minimum, consider running with people in your “pod”! Not only running with other people is a good motivator, but it’s also a safer option when training out in the dark and colder nights. If you have any questions on what high-viz gear you should be wearing, please stop by your closest Marathon Sports, SoundRUNNER, or Runner’s Alley!
