Prices will increase $5 on June 6th. There will be a $50 walk up registration fee. All ages are welcome, however, anyone 12 and older must be registered. If you are not interested in running, we strongly encourage you to volunteer! To volunteer, register online at glowinthenight5k.com.
Sure, there are all sorts of night runs, but nothing like the Glow in the Night 5k! We take the Glow in the Night to the next level, leaving you with a one of a kind experience! Be prepared to get completely covered in glow powder while walking or running the 3 mile course under the cool glow of the black lights. All ages and runner/walker levels are welcome to participate!
This is a family friendly event that will leave you glowing from head to toe! The Glow in the Night course will have designated parts of the course for the glow zones lit by black lights. At these glow zones glow-ologists will bombard participants in order to cover them in color. All of the colors are 100% natural and are safe to digest, although not recommended. Come for the 5k, but stay for the glowing after party! Dance the night away under the black lights while getting covered in more glow dust. You won’t want this fun one of a kind night to end!
Founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver, Best Buddies was the country’s first national, unified, social and recreational program for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). In Wisconsin, Best Buddies is located in schools throughout the greater Milwaukee area, plus currently launching a Citizens program, which will expand the adult friendship program to all adults capable of participating in a mutually beneficial friendship in Milwaukee County.
Theresa Nemetz, State Director of Best Buddies Wisconsin said, “We are so excited to be the charity partner for the Glow In The Night 5K. With our mission based in friendship, this race will be a perfect opportunity for participants to enjoy a delicious event with their friends.”
