Let’s light up Knoxville with some NEON orange for one night! Join us for an evening of family fun, where you can take part in a 5K or 1-mile fun run dressed in all things bright and shiny. Flash and sparkle your way around the course, cross the finish line amid smoke and lasers at World’s Fair Park, and then enjoy post-run entertainment as the day slowly fades away.

The 5K and 1-mile fun run will be untimed, so if you want to take your time and soak in the evening, you won’t have the pressure of a clock to beat. Each entrant will receive a glow-in-the-dark T-shirt, a glow stick, and access to pre- and post-race music and entertainment. We will hand out special prizes for Glow runners who are the brightest, most flashy, and most reflective.

If you have friends who are on the fence about running, let them know online registration will be open until 2:00 pm the day of the event, and we will have on-site registration available during packet pickup.


Please be sure to like us on Facebook at REV3Glow. We post the most up-to-date information there.

For the Knoxville Glow run you will need a pair of running shoes and your normal running attire. You’ll be running at night, so flashlights or head lamps are encouraged and make a fabulous addition to the overall glow! Plus, you can add to your outfit anything that makes you stand out in a crowd. Let's see how bright and colorful you can glow! You can win prizes for having the brightest, flashiest, and most reflective attire. (Start planning your outfit!)
