We take the Glow In The Night 5k to the next level. You will get completely covered in glowrific color dust with friends, family and silly strangers, while focusing more on the fun color and participating in the 5k course, at night, under the cool glow of black lights. Doesn’t matter how fast or old you are to participate in the glow run. The different colors are 100% natural and safe as you can eat the stuff if you want but we don’t suggest it. Wear a white shirt and be prepared to get covered in color. At the end of the three mile course prepare for an after party that will have music and even more color! The goal will be to see how much a person can really be covered in color as every 10 minutes more color will be thrown in the air.
