A RUNNING club is urging people to make sure they are visible when exercising at night.

More than 150 people took part in the “Shine Bright Like Diamonds” run around Durham to highlight the dangers of running and cycling at night.

Chairman Jonathan Hamill said: “Each year we try to think of ways to promote runner safety in the dark of winter.

“Our shine bright like diamonds special event run seeks to create awareness which is relevant, not only to runners but to cyclists, students, and in fact any road user. As a responsible running club, we believe our efforts help the local community which we are proud to be part of.”

The run was staged to coincide with Lumiere, with participants donning their brightest clothes as they took in the installations enroute.
