    BE  SAFE – BE  SEEN

    The clocks don't change until the end of October, but the evenings are getting dark - dig out your reflective or high viz vests and jackets, or wear light clothing (but that doesn’t show up as much as you think).  When road running it is imperative to be safe and be seen even when you're in large groups, so wear clothing which can be easily seen.
