Bright colours are in!

You have probably noticed that almost every runner is geared up in a bright display these days. Do you find yourself buying them too? Here are two reasons why bright colours are in trend, and why they might actually be a good idea to wear!

– Looking good is the first step to get out of the door.

When we look good, we are more inclined to love ourselves and enjoy running more. When we feel good, we run more often and longer. With inspired confidence and eagerness, don’t you find that you wish to get out for a run more often?

– Easily identified, Safety and Branding

Running clubs and events are choosing bright coloured race apparels to stand out of the crowd, promote team spirit and differentiate themselves. Lastly, many runners and teams will make such a choice for safety reasons, specially for training in the nighttime.

No matter what the motivation is, they have definitely created a vibrant running community.

What do colours mean?
