Glow Run 5k

I signed up for another race! This one for April 2013. And it's another fun one, not just a race boring race through town.  I'm thinking the fun 5k's are my kind of race :) The Glow Run is being held Saturday, April 20, 2013 in Des Moines. It's held in the evening and afterwards there's a big glowing after-party. Should be lots of fun!

Here's a little more information about the run that I pulled from their website:

What is the Glow Run?

The Glow Run 5k Run/Walk event is a one of a kind night time experience that is less about how fast you run and more about enjoying the music filled glowing course with your friends and family. For our events, we see participants of all different speeds, ages, shapes, and sizes ready to GLOW. So whether you are a casual walker or an avid runner The Glow Run 5k invites you to come be a part of the fun.

The Course

3.1 miles of glowing fun featuring multiple black light zones, a glowing finish line chute and arch as well as thousands of runners decked out in glow gear. The Glow Run will also feature music at multiple spots along the course as well as an on course DJ pumping out the latest top 40 dance mixes to keep you motivated.

Now who wants to run with me?!? :)


  1. This sounds like so much fun!! Way more fun than the St. Patty's Day one I'm signed up for. I'm sure people will be wearing green and everything, but there won't be any fun black light zones or live music!

  2. Love your blog name! A glow run sounds so fun. I've done the color run and that was pretty cool too! Have a good Thursday!

    1. Hi Alex,
      Thanks, I love it too! It just came to me! My boyfriend made fun of me though when we were brainstorming one night. TMI- but he says it sounds like it's referencing peeing! wtf?!? lol

      I did the Color Run last fall, too! It was a good time!

  3. I need to register for this--I've never run a race at night--I think it will be so much fun!

  4. I think I'm signing up for this as well! I haven't officially committed, yet, though.
