Forfar Road Runners promote safe running at all times and provides members with Hi Viz Kit, which must be worn on all club night runs.  It is, further more, recommended to be worn on all winter training runs.  If you plan to finish your run early, or not return to the New Campus please, as a matter of safety, make other club members aware of this. If you would like to help out or host a session then let us know. During the summer when nights are lighter we have an abundance of routes in the countryside to suit all abilities.
