It's Glow Time 5K
Racers don't pass the starting line at It's Glow Time 5K until the sun begins to set, but that doesn't mean they won't be visible. That's because the participants and the race course are vividly illuminated with glow sticks, blacklights, LEDs, and neon hues. This nightclub-inspired atmosphere suffuses every element of the event, as the route periodically branches off into party zones pumping with beats from live DJs where runners and walkers can stop to dance while participants who are more time focused or who can't turn off their rocket shoes keep up their pace in the designated fast lane. Those party zones, however, are just a warm-up for the finish line, where a final bash greets accomplished racers with lasers, live music, and plenty of food.
