- $39 for entry to a safari-themed Glo Run 5k with an energy upgrade ($65 value)
The 5k starts at 7:45 p.m. on March 28, 2015, at Shelby Farms. Once they take off, participants run through a safari-themed course featuring glowing lions and giraffes, a 100-foot-long, glow-in-the-dark cheetah, and a light show. Once they cross the finish line, they enter into a dance party where a DJ spins a live set.
The energy upgrade includes a Glo logo T-shirt, six pieces of glow-in-the-dark swag, light-up sunglasses, and lets participants run in the first two waves of runners.
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.
