I think we need to give people who turn up on spec on Thursdays some idea about what to wear running in the dark, in fairness it is up to us to let people know.

What we currently have on the home page about this is which we need to work on to make the point
Thursday nights - social run
Thursday nights are from Penylan Community Centre for runs ranging from 3-4 miles to the odd 10 to 12 miler. We meet at about 6:50 pm (run starts at 7pm) and there will always be someone willing to run at your pace. The routes generally involve running past Roath Park lake at some point but we do vary the routes and distances to suit who's there on the night.

How about we add, to both the Tuesday and Thursday sections, something like:

During the winter months, we will be running in the dark and therefore strongly suggest for your own safety that you wear reflective high visibility clothing and you may also wish to consider bringing a headtorch.

?
A nice day out but best to take a flask.

That sounds good. I did a quick count and I reckon that in the Heath Park run we cross a road or junction 25 times. Multiply that by the number of runners and that is a lot of potential danger.

Quite by accident here is a San Domenico vest style bib, shall I order 10 (£6.99 each) and have them available on training nights ?

Another reasonable option from the same supplier www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00ZX99G8A

There's some good stuff in Aldi this week, including some caps with LED lights on the front.
The light is actually quite bright, and at £4.99 good value I think www.aldi.co.uk/en/specialbuys/thur-15-oc...s/p/led-running-cap/
