Be Safe & Be Seen
There is no avoiding it the dark nights are here to stay. Club members safety is really important all year round but even more so now as we are back to pounding the pavement. Not only do we have cars to contend with but we are not the only people out at night and we want to avoid anymore collisions with pedestrians and make sure every runner gets home safely.
There really is no excuse to not be seen. From as little as a few quid you can make yourself visible to other people and I've saved you a job and done a bit of searching about and found a variety of wearable lights and reflective clothing. Ideally a combination of both would make you visible to everyone over the next few months.
Simply clip on to the back of you trainers. A few club members are using these already and they seem to stay in place.
These won't bother you too much during a run.
Loads to choose from, with huge price differences. I like the lightweight ones that have the over the head strap for more stability and a light on the back.
Great for those who don't like anything on their head.
In the pricier range but no one will miss you in these.

These really inexpensive bike lights are very light and are only a few pounds on eBay, clip them to your shoelaces.
Keep your eyes out in Aldi over the next few weeks too. They have some great kit to keep you safe and seen.
