Glow Run 5K

I love 5k’s.  I feel they are a great distance and just about anyone, walkers or runners can do them and feel successful!

I also love 5k’s with a “theme.”  My sister, niece and myself did the Color Me Rad Run last year.  It was a blast!  So much fun and so interesting.  Not your “typical” 5k.

My friend Sarah told me about an upcoming 5k in Chattanooga, TN that sounded like so much fun.  It is the Glow Run 5k.

If you love glow in the dark, loud music, and exercise, this is for you.  Their website says, “The Glow Run 5k Run/Walk event is a one of a kind night time experience that is less about how fast you run and more about enjoying the music filled glowing course with your friends and family. For our events, we see participants of all different speeds, ages, shapes, and sizes ready to GLOW. So whether you are a casual walker or an avid runner The Glow Run 5k invites you to come be a part of the fun.”

I was so excited to do it with lots of family and friends.  Then, they changed the date.  The new date they chose was not feasible with my schedule.  They changed it from last Saturday (beginning of my spring break) to next Saturday (the end of my spring break).  With the run being at night and me having to travel, it wasn’t going to work out for me to run.  BUT…I thought you would like to know about it in case it is coming to your area any time soon!

If you are close to the Chattanooga, TN area, your race is this Saturday, April 5.  You can get $10 off registration by using code GLOWTEN (make sure you use all caps!)

The Glow Run 5k is going to be in lots of other areas also:

  • Columbia, MO
  • Richmond, VA
  • Lincoln, NE
  • Des Moines, IA
  • Kansas City, MO
  • Colorado Springs, CO
  • Duluth, MN
  • Rochester, MN
  • Wichita, KS
  • Omaha, NE
  • Tulsa, OK
  • Springfield, MO

If you live in any of these areas, you should look into joining this run!  It looks like it is going to be a blast and I am so sad I am not able to go this year!

What is the wackiest 5k you have ever done?
