The Great Glow Run

Get Your Glow On

The Great Glow Run is a night time 5K Race that draws runners of all ages and abilities to this fun, eye-catching spectacle!  Participants dress in their favorite glow gear -- headbands, necklaces, LED clothing, body paint and more -- and shine their brightest while creating lasting memories with family and friends.  Runners navigate the glowing course with the help of LED lights, while illuminated volunteers guide the way. 

The start and finish areas feature black lights, digital lighting effects, and energizing music.
