You've got a few options for nighttime running: You can run lightless and stealth, which is exhilarating but dangerous. You can run with a torch, which nobody really does anymore. We recommend wearing a headlamp, which is the safest, most practical option we can think of. As with all running gear, we're looking for something that's effective and minimalist. Black Diamond's Sprinter headlamp has a max 68 lumen LED in the front and a red tail light strobe in back, so there's plenty of light to see what lies ahead and a measure of safety in back for running in urban areas with cars and cyclists. The rechargeable lamp is good for about six hours on high and much more on low or strobe settings. [$70; blackdiamondequipment.com]
