WHAT IS A COLOR GLOW RUN?
Color runs and glow runs are a great way to get outside, maybe train a little or even an easy way to claim that you're a "runner." Getting garbed up in some fantastic glow items (available for sale at the race) and then getting covered in fluorescent, totally safe color powder (extra powder will be on sale) makes for some perfect photos, too.
The 5K Color Glow Run will begin with an explosion of color powder to kick off the race. Volunteers have set up themed experiences at glow stations for you to run through along the course. At each kilometer mark, there will be color splash spots where you can add a different color to your body by running through or bypassing the color throwers if you don't want to get "splashed."
You're in for a colorful evening!
This COLOR POWDER is an environmentally friendly product, non toxic, biodegradable as well as skin safe.
