The maximum brightness in lumens is the standard by which manufacturers rate their headlamps.

Various ways are used by manufacturers to calculate their lamp lumens to determine the amount of light cast from their lamps.

Headlamps should have a good spot beam so that a runner can see far ahead in the distance.

You will be able to clearly see the paths and trail markers far into the distance if your headlamp is 100 lumens bright. You can also use the lower beam level and it gives lesser light, wider beam patterns and it will conserve battery power.
