Dear Pensacola Beach Glow Run supporters,
We regret to inform you that due to an overwhelming number of registrations, we were asked to shut down enrollment for this inaugural event. This decision was implemented by an external authority in which the Glow Run committee nor Catholic Charities can override. We hope that something can be worked out within the next few days so that we can accept more race entries. However, please keep in mind that the Pensacola Beach Glow Run will be the first night run ever taking place on the actual roads of Escambia County. Therefore, this event is new to everyone in the area, and we are taking all measures possible to ensure your safety. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We will continue to keep you updated. From the bottom of our hearts, we are tremendously grateful for all of the interest and support we have received. Thank you.
The Pensacola Beach Glow 5k Run/walk event is an exciting and unique event that is novel to the Gulf Coast area. Come nightfall, participants will run a 3.1 miles course on Pensacola Beach, illuminating the night with neon lights, black lights, and glow sticks. Once the participants reach the finish the line, they will be greeted with a post-race after party featuring locals DJs, performers, and bands performing late into the night. Never before has Pensacola experience such an exhilarating event geared towards participants of all ages.
