Men's Night Running
Ronhill has been making reflective running gear since it was first introduced by Ron in the early 80’s. Ron identified that the kit he was wearing at the time was putting him at risk and wanted to ensure runners safety when they were out training in bad visibility. ... Read more
Ronhill reflective running gear compounds fluorescent fabrics with retro-reflectivity across the range so that it performs in day and night-time light. Drivers aren’t looking for runners.
However, when you are wearing reflective and fluorescent kit, your conspicuity as an object to the driver’s vision is greatly increased, giving them more awareness and time to action, avoiding an accident.
All Ronhill hi-vis products incorporate materials that are “retro-reflective”. These are materials that are effective at returning directional light that strikes their surface back towards its point of origin. “Reflectivity” on the other hand scatters the reflection in various directions but not directly back to its source.
Ronhill makes retro-reflective running outfits including windproof jackets in fluorescent colours, treated with a DWR for rain protection.
Retro-reflectivity can be found in our long and short sleeve t-shirts, full length tights, hats, and gloves (but not all, see below for full information). Retro-reflectivity performs optimally when the object is moving.
We have thoughtfully placed the retro-reflective material on areas of the body that move the most when you run such as your arms, knees, wrists, and ankles. This is so that at least one area of your body can feature some reflectivity, and in doing so, greatly improving your chance of being seen.Read less

“Get going. Get up and walk if you have to, but finish the damned race.”
Words spoken by our inspirational founder and one of Britain’s world class athletes Dr. Ron Hill M.B.E. Ron was a runner, an innovator and a pioneer and strived to not only compete at the elite end of sport but create new apparel and improve clothing for all runners.
Ron’s dedication to the sport is epitomised in his world record run streak of 19,032 days. That’s running every day for 52 years and 39 days. A feat that is unlikely to ever be matched
