The Glo Run
The Glo Run’s 5K fun run event always takes place at night, but it doesn’t seem like it. That's because the course is lined with giant glowing boomboxes, glowing 80’s style mobile phones, black lights, and more. Runners sport glow-in-the-dark gear from head to toe. On-course music add to the festivities, blasting tunes as the untimed participants run, walk, or dance to the finish line. A DJ dance party awaits participants, which lights up the night better than a raccoon that's swallowed a flashlight.
