Running was popular in Europe long before it caught on in America, which is why most races are measured in kilometers and why most of the Pilgrims were eaten by bears. Race to the top of the food chain with this Groupon.

Starting at 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 5, runners of all ages convene to run along the Cayuga Waterfront Trail in the gathering dark. Registration includes a glow-in-the-dark t-shirt and bag, as well as a few extra glowing accessories. Participants in the 5K must arrive by 6:45 p.m.
Planet Fitness Ithaca Glows-5K Event
One night each year, the blurred streaks of glow sticks and luminescent body paint lighten up Ithaca's lakeside landscape during the Ithaca Glows fun run. After the sun sets, the non-competitive event launches from Stewart Park, unleashing participants on a 3K or 5K jaunt down the Cayuga Waterfront Trail. As runners cross bridges and dart under shadowy trees, volunteers hand out water or shine black lights to illuminate white clothing and blast inspiriting music to keep runners from falling asleep mid-stride. Ithaca Police officers are also on hand to keep the course secure. A portion of event proceeds go to benefit the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County.

“Wear a lot of Glow in the dark items especially around your feet. This race gets very dark in some places and hard to see the ground but it was a lot of fun.”
