- $39 for a 5K entry for one with VIP Glo gear ($65 value)
The 5K starts at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 19, at Alliant Energy Center. Runners must first pick up their packets before the packet-pickup area closes at 7 p.m. Runners then line up for a route replete with black lights and music. At 7:40 p.m., a DJ begins to spin at the finish line, kicking off an after party that also features a costume party. The VIP Glo gear includes a fluorescent Glo logo T-shirt, six pieces of glow-in-the-dark swag, and light-up sunglasses.
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.
