Let your light shine at the 4th annual NWFCU Foundation Neon Night Glow Run in Herndon, VA! At this 5K Glow Run and 1-Mile Fun Run, you'll twinkle and sparkle your way around paved roads, the W&OD Trail, and the Runnymede Park Trail, then cross the finish line amid smoke and lasers. Each entrant will receive a glow-in-the-dark T-shirt, a glow necklace, 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, so start planning your outfit! The run will be untimed, so if you want to take your time and enjoy the trails, you won’t have the pressure of a clock to beat.


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.


The Neon Night Glow Run benefits the NWFCU Foundation’s partnership with INOVA Children’s Hospital and its annual Night of Magic. Check out the video from last year's magical event!

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!)
