- $39 for 5K entry with Super Glo package (a $78 value)
The 5K starts at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 7. Runners must first pick up their fun-run 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 the after party, which also features a costume party that starts at 9:50 p.m. The Super Glo package includes a fluorescent 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 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.
