Run in North Carolina’s original, illuminated nighttime 5k race! Participants of all ages and abilities run, walk or roll in this fun, eye-catching spectacle. Join glow-thusiasts by dressing in your favorite glow gear – headbands, necklaces, LED clothing, body paint and more – and shine your brightest while creating lasting memories with family and friends.

Runners navigate the glowing, certified 5k course with the help of LED lights, while illuminated volunteers guide your way. The start and finish areas feature black lights, digital lighting effects, and energizing music. There’s even a black-light photo booth to help you capture all the fun! Race prizes from Omega Sports and costume contests add to the excitement, while the local Afterglow Party rocks you into the night.
