Running was popular in Europe long before it caught on in America, which is why most races are measured in kilometers and why most of the Pilgrims were eaten by bears. Race to the top of the food chain with this Groupon.
$22 for Registration for One to Firefly Run (Up to $55 Value)
For the Firefly Run, racers meet at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on July 19. Racers must pick up their packets the day before at Runners Roost from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Each packet includes 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 event’s post-race dance party which features an LED dance performance by Cherry Creek Dance. The winner of the costume contest will also receive a GoPro Hero3 Camera.
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.
