Flashy Reflective Gear For Night Runs

Photography by James Farrell


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.

Allison played field hockey and golf while growing up, but always ran “just for the fun of it.” She completed and won her age group in her very first race, a 5K, when she was 26 so that she would at least know how to pin on her number before running her first marathon a month later. Those two races turned into dozens, from mile long sprints to ultras, running to triathlon with some ski and snowshoe racing mixed in as well. After earning a Boston qualifier and completing her first IRONMAN 140.6, this mother of two is now focused on seeing how much she can better her 3:48 PB marathon time, running the World Marathon Majors (Boston and Tokyo are in the books!) and tackling a 50-miler.
