How old do I have to be to participate?
This is a fun-for-all-ages event. As long as you can run/walk a 5k, you can be a part of this fun event! We expect families and college students alike. If you are under 18, you will need a parent or guardian to sign a waiver before you can run. If you are under 11, you will also need a responsible adult to participate with you in the run. Groups will be sent off in waves split by various criteria. One of these categories will be families, which will be the first wave to go off so that kids can have fun, and make it to bed on time! Children 4 and under do not have to be registered and will not receive a race goodie bag.
Do I have to be an amazing athlete to do a Glow in the Park Race?
Many people have asked us, “Do I need to be Usain Bolt to finish a Glow in the Park race?” No! You do not need to be an elite Bolt-like athlete to participate. Glow in the Park is meant to bring out everybody from your weekend warriors, to your casual joggers, from somebody who hates running but loves to glow, to your elite athletes.
The bottom line is, you can definitely walk Glow in the Park!
What is included in your registration cost?
We don’t want to give it away but your goodie bag will include many glow products to help you along the way. You will the unique experience of playing in foam pits, getting covered in glow water, and feeling the glow explosion of the glow powder! You will also be met at the finish line by a DJ crankin’ the tunes for a fantastically glowing dance party. This race offers more bang for your buck than anything out there.
What should I wear?
Dress in something comfortable to run in, but not something that you mind getting a bit wet and colorful! To catch the most color, whites work best, but fluorescent colors look great under the black light too. PS- it wouldn’t hurt to bring a change of clothes with you for after the party.
If it glows, are you sure it’s safe?
Yes, all our products are safe for you and our environment! Both our glow water and glow powder will do no harm. We wouldn’t recommend eating it for dinner, but it won’t do any damage. Our throwers and sprayers are trained to aim the colors away from the face and eyes. If you would like some color on your face, just ask the volunteers and then shield your eyes and mouth and they will take care of you!
How long will I glow?
A little soap and water takes everything right off! We recommend you wash clothes as soon as possible.
