The Deal

  • $39 for 5K entry with VIP Package ($65 Value)

The 5K starts at 8:15 p.m. on Saturday, May 3, following a lakeshore-hugging route. Runners pick up their packets at the starting line—a gigantic pair of glow-glasses—and move through the lenses to the beat of DJ-spun high-energy dance music. On their way to the finish line, runners pass through music-filled "dreamscapes"—100-foot tunnels of light formed by glowing arches. At 8:45 p.m., a DJ begins to spin at the finish line, kicking off the after party.

The VIP package includes a Glo logo t-shirt, six pieces of glow-in-the-dark swag, and light-up sunglasses. For more details, see the fun run page and the info page.

The Glo Run

The Glo Run’s 5K fun run event always takes place at night, but it doesn’t seem like it. The course is lined with black lights and lasers, and runners sport glow-in-the-dark gear from t-shirts to sunglasses. On-course DJs add to the festivities, blasting tunes as the untimed participants run, walk, or dance to the finish line. Even more DJs await them there at the glow-in-the-dark after party, which lights up the night better than a raccoon that's swallowed a flashlight.
