The Deal

  • $39 for 5K entry with VIP package ($65 Value)

The 5K starts at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 20. Runners pick up their packets at the starting line—a gigantic pair of glow-glasses—and move through the lenses to the beat of DJ-spun high-energy dance music. On their way to the finish line, runners pass through music-filled "dreamscapes"—100-foot tunnels of light formed by glowing arches. At 7:40 p.m., a DJ begins to spin at the finish line, kicking off the after party.

The VIP package includes a 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.

Mother's Day 5K - Milwaukee

Rather than giving your mom the same old card and 20-verse sonnet this Mother's Day, the Mother's Day 5K lets everyone create a morning of memories during a great cardio workout (plus candies and flowers, of course). Here's what participants and their matriarchs can expect from this heartwarming adventure:

  • The Course: The 5K, which can be run or walked, charts a scenic route along Milwaukee's Lake Michigan shorefront.
  • The Perks (from the starting line): Everybody gets a stylish and super-soft ring-spun designer tee, available in purple or gray, and a racing bib with a timing chip built in.
  • The Perks (at the finish line): Mother (and all finishers) receive a rose, plus a chocolate cake pop.
  • The Cause: Proceeds benefit Wisconsin Ovarian Cancer Alliance, an education-based organization that raises funds for ovarian cancer research.

Customer Reviews

It is very popular and VERY packed. Don't go if you are actaully wanting to run. It's definitely a social event.
