What is it that motivates a runner to make it to the finish line? Different people likely have different answers to this question, but chances are that any person gets an extra boost of energy from the glow paint, color powder, and fun stations sprinkled throughout Epic Glow Run's 5K route. The course feels more like a dance party than a fitness event, thanks to black lights and a live DJ—and indeed, participants can dance across the course if they need a break from running (walking is also encouraged). Amid LED lights, laser light shows, inflatable structures, and other surprises, competitors navigate sprays of foam, glow paint, and color powder, which transform them into color-splattered works of art.
But the real party doesn't begin until runners cross the finish line. The after-party keeps everyone moving with a DJ-hosted dance party, where participants can determine who looks most like a Jackson Pollock painting.
