For the Firefly Run, racers meet at the Home Depot Center on Friday, May 31. They pick up their race packets from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. before lining up at the starting line at 8:30 p.m. Along with registration, each participant receives a themed T-shirt, two Firefly Run 3M reflective LED light bands, a glow-in-the-dark participant bracelet, a race bib, and admission to the postrace dance party and a dance performance by YouTube celebrity Marquese Scott. A GoPro Hero HD video camera is awarded to the winner of the costume contest at 9:30 p.m.

Firefly Run 5K

The Firefly Run combines the rigor of a 5K and a 10K race with the kaleidoscopic colors of a light show. LED beams and lasers pierce the dark, leading racers decked out in light-festooned gear through nighttime streets and parks to raise money for charity. Race coordinators keep competitors bright by encouraging them to wear costumes fitted with glow sticks, cartoonish helmets, light-up armbands, or any other light-themed decoration. Beyond the finish line, runners and audiences alike celebrate at a postrace dance party with live entertainment, visual effects, and a costume contest that rewards unique outfits and the athlete who was able to ward off the most gremlins.
