As autumn swings into full gear, leaves change color, the air grows crisp and the sun sets earlier. For runners, this means more early morning and evening miles spent training in the dark.
Are you coming to our Brooks Nightlife Run on November 6th at 6:00 pm?
While the cooler temps of fall are perfect for setting new race PRs, running at night can be risky when you are not visible to other cars, runners and cyclists. Running with high-visibility apparel and accessories like the Brooks Nightlife Collection can make all the difference.
To prepare for National Running Safety Month, pick yourself up some visibility gear, join a Brooks Nightlife Run on November 6th and checkout the list of visibility tips below. Just because the night gets longer this time of the year, doesn’t mean you need to cut back on your weekly mileage. You can “Be Seen” all times of the year.
Wear bright colors and reflective gear during low-light hours. We suggest checking out our Nightlife high-visibility apparel.
If you’re running next to a road, this helps cars to see you as they approach.
Clearly signal to cars where you are going.
Wait, watch and listen for cars before crossing intersections.
And don’t forget to carry your cell phone at all times.
And while you’re at it, run with a friend or in a group.
