See & Be Seen

Run Safely in the Dark

When the sun goes down, it's time to turn up the lights.

You want to be visible on your dark runs so drivers, cyclists and other pedestrians can see you. But, to be seen, you have to take visibility into your own hands.

With reflective running clothes, high-visibility running lights and more of our favorite low-light running gear, you can make sure you're visible to anyone who might cross your path.

How to Run Safely at Night

You can never fully trust a driver, cyclist or other runner to see you when you're running at night or early in the morning—even if you're covered head to toe in reflective running gear. So it's important you take safety into your own hands.

Use these tips to stay safe when running in the dark:

  • Stay off the road. Run on the sidewalks and trails when possible. Even with their headlights on and in well-lit areas, it can be difficult for drivers to see pedestrians and runners on the road. If you have to run on the road, run facing traffic—it's easier for you to get out of the way quickly than for a driver to change course
  • Leave the headphones at home. You always want to be fully aware of your surroundings when you're running. You put yourself at a higher risk of being hit by a car if you can't hear them coming
  • Light up your moving parts. Human eyes and brains are drawn to lights, bright colors and motion, so put running lights and reflective running gear on your shoes, legs and arms
  • Assume you are invisible. Even though you might legally have the right of way when crossing a street, never assume a driver sees you. Cross behind cars waiting to turn and take extra precaution when around traffic
