TRAIL RUNNING FOR THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED

Image
Recently, I was included on an e-mail asking about tools and techniques that visually impaired runners can use while trail running.  There was some great information in that forum, and it would stand to reason because the people on the e-mail were phenomenal VI athletes - Richard Hunter(USABA Marathon Chair & recently featured in a zillion articles with his Running Guide Dog, Klinger), Adrian Broca (one of my idols, VI marathon champion & soon to be 24 hour run competitor), Kyle Robidoux (Blind Beer Runner, marathoner, ultra-runner, & just great guy!), and Randy Pierce (stud who will be summiting Kilimanjaro soon, if not already done, and runner extraordinaire).

I made a quick video showing some tools and techniques I use for trail running and night running.  It includes tips for using trekking poles, sun glasses, lighting, head ware, guide selection, reflective gear and strobes.  I hope this is helpful & PLEASE LEAVE COMMENTS ON ANY OTHER TECHNIQUES YOU USE.
Enjoy!!!
