David,
 
With the time change a week ago, those of us that run in the evening we are definitely running in the dark. For those that run in the morning, you start your run in the dark and finish with some daylight. Whether you run in the morning or in the evening, the majority of runners and walkers are out on the roads in the dark. This can present some hazardous conditions even if you run on sidewalks. If you're running on the road, you want to be visible to drivers and provide them enough opportunity to see you.
 
Below is an image that shows what a driver sees. You can easily tell which runner is most visible and this is at dusk when there is still a little bit of daylight left.
Tips For Running In The Dark
  • Run against traffic (even if on a sidewalk). This allows you to see vehicles approaching and allows you time to react.
  • Wear reflective clothing or vests that are visible from all directions (360 degrees of reflectivity).
  • Wear bright colors (provides even more visibility)
  • Add a red flashing light and wear it on your back so you'll be noticed.
  • Wear a headlamp or handheld flashlight. It's also important for you to be aware of trip hazards (potholes or cracks in the sidewalk).
Stop by any of our 8 Big Peach Running Co. locations to learn more and pick up the proper apparel and accessories to keep you visible and running safely this winter. Shop online.
