Want to run with glow sticks and covered in LED lights? Check out the Firefly Illuminated 5K/10K Night Run. Currently, this race is offered in Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Phoenix, Denver, Chicago and San Jose. But keep checking the website as they may add new cities.
Atlanta only offered the 5K run starting & finishing at Piedmont Park. There were about 4 hills so the run was actually a little tough! I didn’t die of water cancer or think about pushing a kid off a scooter so all in all, I’d say it’s a win 🙂
I formed a team named The Glitterati. We had an awesome time! There was plenty of music, bananas, water and great people! Between the neon glowing wigs to lighted fairy wings, there was a bit of everything. Running inspires camaraderie and it’s amazing how you will strike up a conversation with complete strangers over the common theme of racing.
