Getting Glasgow Glowing

Runners in Glasgow will have a chance to learn how to run safely in the winter nights as jogscotland team up with Run 4 It to lead a free awareness event, 'Ready Steady, Glow', in Kelvingrove Park on Wednesday, November 3 at 7pm.

The event aims to teach runners how to be safe and seen by motorists, by wearing reflective clothing during the winter months. Leaders will take the group around the park in a 5k course, discussing the ways in which runners can increase their visibility during night time runs.

Everyone who attends the event will also receive a complimentary high-visibility safety accessory from event sponsors Ronhill, energy product samples and a selection of free food and drink to help them perform at their peak.

Duncan Riddoch, managing director of Run 4 It, said: "It's vital that runners ensure they do everything they can to make themselves as visible as possible when they're out after dark, and high-visibility clothing and accessories are the best way to avoid incidents with road users.

"We're committed to providing runners with all-round support to help them achieve their potential, from our cutting-edge shoe fitting service to the expert therapy and advice available from Sports Injury Scotland in our Glasgow Bothwell Street store.

"Our Ronhill Ready, Steady, Glow initiative is the natural next step in our efforts to keep Glasgow's runners healthy and safe, and we're confident the event will be popular with local people."

Run 4 It stores stock a full range of high-visibility equipment, from high-visibility bibs and jackets to head-torches and running lights.
