Once the sun goes down at Long Family Park, we turn on the lights and make the 5K course glow.  Register early and save! Adults $30, Students $20.  All proceeds benefit Special Olympics Colorado.

Participants get glow powder, glow sticks, and are encouraged to dress up!!  New and improved Glow Stations are set up throughout the course to maximize fun.

The course

This is a night event so neon colors, glow sticks, and headlamps are encouraged! Registration includes glow sticks and color powder packs that glow at stations placed throughout the course. Additional color powder packs can be purchased at the registration booth.

Water stations are set up at the finish line and at the midpoint of the run/walk.
