The Glo Run Columbus
It’s 5 kilometers of neon lights, wacky costumes, and larger-than-life inflatable animals. It’s the Glo Run 5K Safari Tour, and it’s taking the nation’s nights by storm. Highlights on the run include glowing monkeys, zebras, and elephants, an inflatable series of arches of curving giraffe necks, and a 100-foot-long black-light cheetah. At the end of the race is a DJ dance party, and the whole thing goes to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
