$27 for The Rave Run Nighttime 5K Light Show with Glow Gear and After-Party on Friday, May 17 (Up to $60 Value)

On Friday, May 17, participants and spectators gather for the The Rave Run, a 3.1-mile experience with artist-designed lighting effects and music. Check-in runs from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Garry Gribble's Running Sports on Thursday, May 16. Each runner's packet contains a runner's bib, an event T-shirt, a pair of glow glasses, a glow necklace, and one LED bracelet. Extra glow accessories are available for purchase during online registration. After the race, 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.
