This week’s topic is Tips for Night Races
I am definitely not an expert since I only run one night race a year…
- Wear bright colors
- Carry a flashlight or wear a headlamp if there aren’t lights
This shouldn’t be a problem because most races should be on roads that are well lit.
- Be prepared for a slower finish time
You have to look out for cracks, potholes and things in the road that you can’t see when it is dark. No doubt, this will make you run slower. I didn’t one year and I fell.
- Shift your meals.
You don’t want to run on a full stomach (dinner) and you don’t want to run on an empty stomach. I usually eat my breakfast 2 hours before the race.
Happy Running! Do you run night races? Any other tips?
