More and more runners who hit the trails at night are wearing a light around their waists or torsos as a supplementary or even their sole light source.
Most often folks have used a headlamp to get this done. However, for a few years now, GoMotion has been offering both backpacks with built in lighting systems as well as supplementary kits that attached to your preferred hydration pack. The GoMotion Fusion Backpack Light Kit ($59.95) is the company’s latest add-on light kit that throws up to 100 lumens to brighten your trail running experience.
Coreen Melville is why we make GoMotion products. She sent us this pic from one of her runs and said,
“Running after work in Newton is essential for my marathon training, but it wouldn’t be possible or safe without my LiteBelt”.
It’s dark out and yeh, that’s snow in the background, but Coreen is going to be ready – no excuses. It’s the thousands of runners that step up to the starting line come race day and are ready that we cater to. They work hard, have families & commitments, but they find the time to train. That can mean 5am or 10pm, but for most of them it’s done in the dark. Daylight savings time just added an hour to sun-up on those early morning runs as well.
We will be at the Boston Marathon Expo April 12-14th (booth #2023) this year with our complete line of wearable lights for runners like Coreen who do their miles no matter what.
From there, we will join the Reach the Beach crew for their Spring event in Massachusetts. RTB has been running their over-night relays for 15 years now, with an impeccable safety record. GoMotion is proud to partner with them as the official light supplier.
Spring events are coming fast, now’s the time to train & be ready!
