  1. Club Night Runs in the dark

As it is now getting dark when we return from our Thursday run we strongly recommend that all runners and walkers wear a Hi Viz top and carry a head torch. Everyone please take extra care when running alongside and/or crossing roads and make sure you can be seen by car drivers.

Nathan is collating a guide for our new members of light torches “recommended by our members” If you’re happy with what you are using and feel it is worthy of a recommendation then please send an email with make and model.

We will also use the feedback to get some club “spares” for our members to trial.
