What is Blacklight Run?

The Blacklight Run™ is none other than the brightest, most fun run with distances up to 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. Instead, we welcome any and all participants looking for a glowing good time.
