What Is The Blacklight Run™?

The Blacklight Run™ is none other than the brightest, most fun 5K out there. At the Blacklight Run™ we aren’t focused on how fast or how far you can run, what type of exercise you enjoy, or if you’re an avid runner. We don’t care if you’ve never run a day in your life! Instead, we welcome any and all participants looking for a glowing good time. Whether you sprint it, run it, or walk it, it doesn’t matter to us! We simply want you to enjoy it. These three miles will be the best three miles you’ve ever spent with your friends and family—we promise.
Every Participant Will Receive:
  • A commemorative Blacklight Run™ t-shirt
  • A Blacklight Run™ glow-in-the-dark temporary tattoo
  • A Blacklight Run™ race bib
  • A donation to a local charity
  • A Blacklight Run™ Glow Pack (given at the finish line!)
  • Admission to the Blacklight Run After Party™
*Children 5 and under are FREE with a paying adult.
