The Glo Run
Not all runners are morning people, eagerly warming up before the latest crack-of-dawn race event. Luckily, the night owls have their own outlet: The Glo Run. The fluorescent 5K unleashes its participants into the dwindling light of the evening armed with glow sticks, glow-in-the dark bracelets, and light-up sunglasses. This illuminating paraphernalia helps them navigate the shadowy corners of the course, which features thumping music, lighting effects, and squirrels equipped with laser-beam eyes. At the finish line, runners and walkers can relish another staple of nighttime parties, dancing the evening away to rollicking tunes spun by a live DJ.
