On Saturday, June 22, racers slog through mud and water obstacles on their choice of a 5k or 10k course. Held on Tap Root Farm, the race is open to participants age 12 and older. Entry packages include a t-shirt, wristband, and, for competitive racers, a timing chip. Participants must wear boots and long pants. For more information, see the race page and the FAQ.
Fans of Mario Kart know Rainbow Road as a glow-in-the-dark racecourse in outer space. So do fans of ABC's The Bachelor, only theirs is located on earth and strewn with more celebrities than turtle shells. To them, it's the series of inflatable arches that flashed hypnotically around Juan Pablo and Kat as they hurtled through the Electric Run. Seth Rogen, Carmen Electra, and a pink-wigged Vanessa Hudgens have also been spotted among the global event's hordes of runners and walkers.
Rainbow Road is just one of many "lands" that make up Electric Run's luminescent 5K. Any given Electric Run course contains five to seven of these brightly lit zones, each decorated according to its theme with neon trees, hanging umbrellas, phosphorescent cacti, and cascading fountains. Each land also matches the surroundings with its own soundtrack: upbeat and energizing for the wilder areas, calming and melodic for the surreal ones. Once the sun sets, participants travel through them all at their preferred pace. Everyone arrives at the same final destination, however—a DJ-propelled after party that keeps the night illuminated until the thunderous ka-chunk of the sun's timecard.
