What is Blacklight Run™? Blacklight Run™ is a unique night experience focused less on speed and more on glow-in-the-dark fun with friends and family. Glowing participants come from all different ages, shapes, sizes, and speeds; every participant will get Glowed™ and has the time of their life. Whether you are an avid runner or a walk around the park walker, the 3 miles of the Blacklight Run™ course will have you glowing and waiting for the next one! How does it work? The Blacklight Run™ has been setup with very simple rules: 1) Wear a white shirt (any white T-shirt will work) worn at the start line. 2) Finish covered in neon powder, that will glow in the Blacklight Zones™ and at the Blacklight Run Party™. By the end, they look like they fell into a ghost busters movie and are covered with different colored Glow™. This is the first of its kind at night and is quickly sweeping the nation!
Each participant will receive: - White Blacklight Run T-Shirt - Swag from Sponsors - Race Bib - Donation to local charities - Glow Pack to throw at the finish line! What is the Glow™?
Along the running path you will find Blacklight Zone's™, which are associated with a designated color: green, pink, or blue. As the runners/walkers reach the Blacklight Zones™ they are showered with neon powder that glows with our high beam black lights at every zone. All products are 100% natural and non-toxic. At the end of the race there will be a Blacklight Run Party™ filled with music pumping from the DJ, neon powder all while glowing under tons of black lights! What about the finish line? Are you ready for the best After Race party on the PLANET? After the finish, participants are encouraged to stick around, celebrate, and see exactly how much Glow one person can handle. We will have Glow, and festivities that will make your Glowing head spin.
