Head or Chest torch


Hi Folks, wanting to join the night runs on a Friday now and then. I have a head torch for hiking but it's only 120lumen!


What do you suggest over 200 lumens for the runs head or chest and brand!?


I don't want to spend a fortune either ;-)



Amazon is your place, there are many Chinese brands with claimed brightness of 2000+ lumens in the £15-20 bracket. The battery life will not be as good as a lesser power Petzl but they provide really good illumination. As with many chinese products it is a bit of a gamble but a couple of us have chinese brand head torches and they perform really well.

  • Hi All, I've suggested times and subjects for some coached sessions in the past with very little take up (possibly because the darkness of winter was off-putting) but I'd love to hold some coach sessions for interested parties. There's already a Strength and Agility session in the calendar once a month on a Tuesday evening but please do put forward your requests (including days and times) and I will do my best to organise something :)
  • So this seems to have helped loosen me up a fair bit and thought that I would share it around. I am sure many of you already have routines, take of it what you will :)
