Register for the GLOW RUN

August 8th 2014!!

The Glow Run 5K Run/Walk is a one of a kind night time fun run that is less about how fast you complete the 5K and more about enjoying the music, glowing course and being with friends and family. We will see people of all ages, shapes and sizes ready to GLOW. So, whether you are a casual walker or an avid runner, The Glow Run invites you to take part and make memories that will last forever.
