Prices will increase $5 on Sept. 5th. 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.
We take the Glow in the Night 5k 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!
The mission of Autism of Hendersonville is to improve the lives of individuals and their families on the autism spectrum by creating a strong support system directly in our community and surrounding areas. We strive to bring awareness, education & hope to families in and around our community.
"Individuals and families affected by autism face many unique challenges,”
says Executive Director of Autism Tennessee, Amanda Peltz. “Autism Tennessee is the only organization of its kind providing the guidance, education, hope, and community these families so desperately need. The Glow In The Night 5k is an incredibly fun way that YOU can help bring this support to LOCAL families! We are very excited about this race and hope you will plan to join us on Sept. 20th!"
