One of the best run & most fun events, and Gomotion is the official lighting supplier!
Reach the Beach is a great N.E. event, & it just got twice as good – they are adding a Spring event May 20-21st.

“My final energizing-find to share isn’t a sodium-laced drink or fruity carb-source, but a cross between an reflective vest and a headlamp. I got to test a just-hitting-retail GoMotion Street Runner LiteVest during the Hood to Coast last month, and it was awesome. The chest-height light cast a wide, bright beam–no tunnel-vision light like from a headlamp. And the flashing red light in the center of my back, along with reflective piping, made me feel visible to cars coming from behind. Wistfully, I know I will be sporting this vest before too long as the days get shorter”.

GoMotion LiteVest and LiteBelt Preview
New outdoor and running products are always hitting the market, but it’s rare when I learn of a new product and think “why didn’t I think of that!” Such was the case when a friend emailed me about the new GoMotion packs, as he’d had the very same thought. I wonder if a similar email is what led Jonathan Craig and Bob Hunnewell to found GoMotion, Inc. and create running packs with integrated lighting systems.
RSN’s review of the GoMotion LiteVest begins at 1:10 of this clip.
Sternum lamp by GoMotion
Head lamps changed the night world of outdoors enthusiasts, but the devices can often provide more angst than help to runners or hikers on the trails in the dark. The center of the chest is more stable than a bobbing head while running. GoMotion’s sternum light ($79, available March 30) provides a powerful and stable light path. It attaches to the straps on your favorite pack. LiteVests and SportBelts are also available. www.gomotioninc.com
