"The Electric Run was a blast! Imagine running with a ton (10,000 in San Diego) of creative, glowing, happy people through flashing lights and music. Then, if that's not enough, you can hit up the after party. It's like two events in one. The race is a must do."

"I loved all the glow-in-the-dark decorations like Neffmau5 Land and the light installations. You can stop and take some amazing photos, and the best part was that they had volunteers throughout the race to take pictures and pass out glow sticks and water. It was an absolute blast and I would definitely do it again with a big group of friends."
There's Something for Everyone

"This event is great for the hardcore, veteran runners and the 5K fun runners. It appeals to the entire spectrum. You'll see people who have never completed an endurance event before, along with triathletes and marathoners. Participants bring their entire family and show the younger generations that running can be fun."

"Each event is very different based on the courselands (the decorated areas runners travel through) and the layout of the race. You can run through the Motor Speedway in Atlanta or run on the field at Gillette Stadium in Boston, the home of the New England Patriots."
You Get to Dress Up

"It was so much fun to dress up. There were people dressed from head to toe in glowing accessories. Besides that, the end of the race was my absolute favorite part. The DJ plays for the rest of the night at the post-race party."
The Race is Fun for All Ages
7 of 11
"The demographic is generally runners who are 14 to 30, but we've seen 60-year-olds, parents pushing babies in strollers (with headphones on of course) and even 96-year-old runners."
It's Full of Excitement and Energy
8 of 11
"It's the best of both worlds: it's a race and a new experience. Magical trees, enchanted forests, lasers and fog surround the course; it's an incredible ambiance. There's so much excitement and energy throughout the entire race."
You Can Go on a Journey to a New World
