Glow South Riding

April 28, 2018

Click here for the participant email, sent 4/24, full of race-day info!

Grab your kids, your friends, your neighbors, your team and light up light up the streets of South Riding at our 3rd annual Glow South Riding 5K or 1-mile fun run. Dressed to glow in all things bright and shiny, flash and sparkle your way around the course! The race begins at dusk.

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 a pre-run party.

Bring a friend or the whole family! Online registration will be open until the day before the event, and we will have on-site registration available during packet pickup.

Please be sure to like us on Facebook and at Adventure Enablers. We post the most up-to-date information and lots of pictures there.

Time to get ready to GLOW!

For the 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!)
