The Glow Run is a 3-5k, untimed, non competitive, fun event, with a mini music fest all in one. Runners start off wearing a white or black shirt or hoodie and finish the race colored in glow powder. Along the glow course you will find Glow Zone’s which are associated with a designated color: orange, yellow, pink, or blue. As the runners, and walkers reach the Glow Zone they run through different colored powder that glows in the dark under our black lights.
Our run is for everyone wanting to get in a little exercise and have fun while doing it, walk, run, fast, slow, go at your own pace, there’s no winner or looser. We have marathon runners, power walkers, to brand new people looking to begin.
Our mission is to promote a healthy lifestyle while having fun doing it, and giving back to the community.
