Nighttime Running & Visibility Tips

Running in the Dark

It's that time of year again! Fall is in full swing and one of the best ways to enjoy these cool, crisp temperatures is by hitting the pavement. 
For many of us, we don't have the luxury of running at 10 am on any given weekday. If we want to get our run in, we often times have to go before the sun rises or as the sun is setting, meaning we run in the dark.  Did you know that 70% of pedestrian fatalities occur during 6:00 am & 6:00 pm? That's a scary number!
However, with the proper visibility gear and safe practices running during dark hours doesn't have to be an intimidating event.

Check out this video by Nathan Sports to learn how to be seen and safe at night (click here)!
