Headlamp Failure on the trails

LcDSCN9897

Here are two scenarios that I am sure that many can relate to:

First, you’re out on the trails in the dark of the late night or pre-dawn… and the patch of illumination form your headlamp fades to black in front of you.

The second is tripping over a tree root or a rock and face planting the trail. You get up and your trusty head lamp is dead.

What to do – especially if you are miles or tens of miles from the trail head?

My experience from doing almost all my running solo and unsupported has forced me to be self sufficient even in those dark times.

In this video I share with you what I do.

What about you? What’s your back up plan? Share below.
