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 can enter Party Zone in the Jam Lane, while the more serious runners can run through in the Fast Lane. 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!
