- $39 for 5K entry with VIP Glo gear ($65 value)
The 5K starts at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 6, at the Lawn at White River State Park. Runners must first pick up their packets before the packet-pickup area closes at 8 p.m. Runners then line up for a route replete with black lights and music. At 8:50 p.m., a DJ begins to spin at the finish line, kicking off an after party that also features a costume party that starts at 9:50 p.m. The VIP Glo gear includes a fluorescent Glo logo T-shirt, six pieces of glow-in-the-dark swag, and light-up sunglasses.
The Glo Run 5K 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.
