The classic story of the tortoise and the hare teaches us two things: slow and steady wins the race, and never bet money on an all-animal marathon. Chug along with this Groupon.
- $30 for one entry to the Illuminite Run 5K Night Run and After Party (up to a $55 value)
The run takes place on Saturday, August 10, at 8:45 p.m., outside the Aviator Sports and Events Center. Runners clad in glow-in-the-dark garb and accessories will circle the vibrantly lit 3-mile track en route to the post-race party. Runners should arrive 30–60 minutes before the event.

Illuminite 5K Night Run and After Party
If it glows in the dark, it's probably worth bringing to the Illuminite 5K Night Run and After Party. Staged at night in cities across the country, the run sports vibrant lighting displays throughout its route and encourages participants to sprint while sporting fun neon items such as glow sticks, glow glasses, and boas made out of glow worms. At the run's deceptively named finish line, a post-race party with live DJs begins.
Red Frog Events, the organizers of the Illuminite 5K Night Run and After Party, encourage participants to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by offering special gifts. A $75 donation gets you an upgraded glow pack; $150 gets a shirt; and $300 gets VIP access to the after party.
