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.
