With hands gripped to the wheels of karts capable of cresting 45 miles per hour, up to 12 racers hum around the hairpin turns and straightaways of K1 Speed's indoor track during adrenaline-spiking sprints toward the podium. This brand of excitement can be found at all 20+ locations, where racers eschew the fumes and inflammatory skywriting of gas kart exhaust for European, eco-friendly electric karts designed to instantly accelerate out of curves, which are bordered by safety barriers that absorb impacts.

Everyone runner that arrives at the ColorBlast 5K Glo Run's end point looks like he or she just escaped in from an exploding neon factory. In addition to sporting this prismatic new fashion statement, they all seem to have smiles on their faces. That's because the event is more of a celebration than a competition—sporting the fanciest glow sticks takes precedence over getting the best time you can. In fact, lingering at key points along the 5K route is encouraged. It's at these locations, named rave stations, that runners encounter a mini-disco full of black lights, disco balls, and even a live DJ. After snapping a couple hundred selfies, racers can continue to the finish line, where the DJ will be spinning both music and lights. These pounding beats and futuristic glow announce a collective victory, not just for each participant but the community as a whole. 100% of proceeds from each Color Blast 5K Glo Run benefits Omni Youth Services and local food banks.
Metropolis Performing Arts Center enriches the community with the beauty and culture of the theater, so it only makes sense that their version of a 5K is intensely theatrical. Dressed as a favorite stage, screen, or TV character, participants walk, jog, and monologue their way
through a route that rolls by the verdant lawns and tree-lined streets of Arlington Heights. Twists and turns down Walnut and Maple and Chestnut streets breaks up Evergreen and Highland Avenue straightaways, and prizes at the finish line reward out-of-breath thespians for creating the best group or individual costumes.
