Night-time Safety Tips for Runners

  1. Maximize reflective gear, which increases the distance from which drivers can see you.
  2. Think low. Most headlights are angled slightly down, so lighting the lower leg is important. Try reflective socks or shoelaces, and add reflective tape to shoes.
  3. Accentuate the moving parts. Make sure you have reflective gear on feet, ankles and wrists, which move the most during your stride.
  4. Be bright and flashy: Handheld flashlights or headlamps serve dual purposes, lighting your way and alerting drivers to your presence. Studies show flashing lights are more eye-catching than solid lights.
