What is It's Glow Time?

What would happen if a 5K was held in a nightclub? It would look like It's Glow Time! Join us for a 5K Run/Walk with one of the best party atmospheres around. It's Glow Time 5K happens at twilight, starting under black lights and lasers with a DJ pumping up the crowd. Along the race route there are party zones, each with their own musical entertainment. Party zones are designed so participants wanting to stay in the zone and jam for a bit. But don't stay there forever because It's Glow Time 5K ends with a huge post-race party with live music, sponsor food and drink, black lights and lasers. If you're looking for a unique event friendly to all fitness levels, offering the best post-race party around then you've found it - It's Glow Time!

Please pay attention to the weather forecast.  Be prepared for any type of weather, from rain to extreme heat.  The race will go on rain or shine.  Because of the tens of thousands of dollars invested in lighting, if it rains, the experience may not be to the events full extent.  We have spent countless hours making sure we can provide a quality experience rain or shine but have to take some equipment off the course if rain occurs. 

The Party Zones are staffed by DJs that are covered in tents.  Party Zones will be rocking and GLOWING rain or shine!
