Set the night on fire with running gear that screams, “Here I come!”
Even though the days are getting longer, sometimes we can’t avoid a run that means dipping out into the inky darkness. Night runners face two battles: seeing and being seen. Streetlights and headlamps help with the first, but the second is more complicated—and the choices you make could save your life.
Last year, more than 76,000 pedestrians were injured by drivers—and the majority of those accidents occurred after nightfall. When you’re out for an after-dark run, it’s crucial to shine bright.
Stay safe by being a beacon of movement with clothes in poppy, neon colors and reflective features that ignite with oncoming lights. You can even have some fun with glow-in-the-dark technologies that add a ﬁreﬂy radiance to your style. Whether you like to glow, shine or reflect—we’re looking out for you with new apparel that lights up the night.
