Running Safe with Northampton Road Runners

Northampton Road Runners are running safe

Since the tragic events of 2015 NRR have taken to running with high vis' tops illuminated with lights so that all of our runners can be seen from a distance in the dark.

These vest have been donated to the club by the local council and are free to paid members.

Winter Running with NRR

When it is dark anyone who runs with us on a club night must wear a high vis' top as a safety measure.

Summer Running with NRR

During the summer months we ask all who run with us to continue to ensure that their clothing is bright and visible to road users. You don't need to wear a reflective bib simply a brightly coloured hi-viz t-shirt will get you noticed! Be safe-Be seen = runningsafe ;-)

Running in the dark

Obviously running in the dark or at anytime for that matter has certain hazards which we as a club try to minimise in order to make it as safe and enjoyable as possible.

  1. Consider carrying a phone.
  2. Be visible - wear Hi-Vis and fluorescent clothing. Even in daylight there is a noticeable difference.
  3. Cross roads where you feel safe. Think safety, you are not in a race.
  4. Run in groups - not only safer but more sociable.
  5. When in a group stick together and never leave anyone behind.
  6. YOU are responsible for your own safety.

The local RunningSafe campaign is managed by Stephen Kennedy, himself a NRR member. Steve's campaign is designed to raise awareness of runners with all road users with the aim of making them a safer place for everyone. All road users needing to take responsibility for their own safety and the safety of others. You can see more about RunningSafe here: www.runningsafe.co.uk
