The Invasion Run 5K
Like living in a science-fiction movie, or a real-life X-Files that leaves "We Are Not Alone" T-shirts soaked in sweat, The Invasion Run 5K combines the thrills of a race with the chills of a "little green men" onslaught for a unique racing experience. Armed with glow sticks, contestants consisting of humans, monsters, robots, spacemen, and other characters of sci-fi lore race under the starry sky for the prize across five cleverly crafted battlegrounds. Race trails carved in fields of corn give way to creepy crop circles, an alien mothership, the mysterious Area 51, and a slimy slime dump and slime pit that covers racers in slime.
