Fans of Mario Kart know Rainbow Road as aglow-in-the-dark racecourse in outer space. So do fans of ABC’s The Bachelor,only theirs is located on earth and strewn with more celebrities than turtleshells. To them, it’s the series of inflatable arches that flashedhypnotically around Juan Pablo and Kat as they hurtled through the ElectricRun. Seth Rogen, Carmen Electra, and a pink-wigged Vanessa Hudgens have alsobeen spotted among the global event’s hordes of runners and walkers.
Rainbow Road is just one of many “lands” that makeup Electric Run’s luminescent 5K. Any given Electric Run course contains fiveto seven of these brightly lit zones, each decorated according to its theme, withneon trees, hanging umbrellas, phosphorescent cacti, and cascading fountains.Each land also matches the surroundings with its own soundtrack: upbeat andenergizing for the wilder areas, calming and melodic for the surreal ones. Oncethe sun sets, participants travel through them all at their preferred pace.Everyone arrives at the same final destination, however—a DJ-propelled after-partythat keeps the night illuminated until the thunderous_ka-chunk_ of the sun’s timecard.
