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.

After the run is the after-party! And ours is better than you’ve ever experienced. When you cross the finish line is when the Neon Sky™ celebration gets started! Get your glow pack and head to the main stage. The DJs will light up the Neon Sky™ and you will light up the dark. Later, these memories will light up your life. Every 15 minutes or so, there is a GLOW THROW! Don’t miss this. It’s where we celebrate your success, throw that glow powder in the air, and dance the night away. Even better?
