On Saturday, April 6, participants and spectators gather for the The Rave Run, a 3.1-mile experience with artist-designed lighting effects and music. Each runner receives a runner's bib, an event T-shirt, and glow-in-the-dark items such as glow sticks and necklaces. Participants can also bring additional glow-in-the-dark items and outfits. The run starts at 8:30 p.m., before an after party closes everything out with a DJ.

The Rave Run
As night falls, participants in the noncompetitive Rave Run pull on neon T-shirts, don glow-in-the dark glasses, and stuff their pockets with glow sticks. Spectators look on as the throng of illuminated runners, which includes kids and adults, make their way through a 5-kilometer course that winds through city streets.
The event culminates with an after party, where a DJ spin tunes and powerful lasers cast out beams that illuminate wide smiles and the secret locations of any lost arks in the vicinity. Fog machines and CO2 jets help create a high-adrenaline atmosphere as attendees dance with their glow-in-the-dark compatriots. All the fun is for a good cause; The Rave Run partners with a local charity in each participating city.
