With the hour change on Sunday, here are our 3 top tips for remaining safe while running after dark.
1) Always use a head torch. In our experience a head torch is by far the simplest solution for night time running in unlit areas. Consider some red lighting for your back - smaller LEDs or armbands are ideal.
2) Run against the direction of the traffic. Wherever possible avoid traffic or run on the pavement. But if not, it's safer to face the oncoming traffic.
3) Run with friends. It's often more pleasant to run with friends but all the more so after dark in remote or edgy areas.
So wrap up warm, put on your head torch and enjoy your Autumn running!
