- C$29 for entry to the ElectroDash 5K on Friday, September 12 at Canada Olympic Park (up to C$55 value)
Runners donning neon and glow-in-the-dark garb converge at Canada’s Olympic Park to experience a mind-blowing 5K night course. The first wave of runners departs at 8 p.m., and a subsequent waves leave every 15 minutes to 8:45 p.m. Runners receive a T-shirt, a pair of glow glasses, and a glow bracelet. After competitors cross the finish line, they can get down at the post-race party with DJ tunes.
The ElectroDash's organizers score their 5K night runs with the most appropriate soundtrack: electronic dance music. The pulsing beats, which can be heard at runs throughout Canada and the United States, attract runners to tackle the neon-light illuminated course. On the track, a slew of light displays, lasers, fog tunnels, projected images and black lights highlight competitors' eye-dazzling accessories, including neon duds, glow-in-the-dark glasses, and water bottles filled with an excited anglerfish. Though the ElectorDash's main mission is fun, it also champions giving back to the community by donating a portions of the proceeds to support a local charity.
