What's New This Year

In 2016, Glow in the Park 5K will be adding a new glowing theme for our events! We are super psyched to head back to the 80’s! Dude, it would be so totally lame if you didn’t, like, get in the mood and party hardy with us. So come check out our wicked fresh beats and rad hairdos. But don’t be a poser and leave your killer leg warmers at home. You’ll miss your chance to win the tubular costume contest! Yes, we said costume contest! And, like duh, we’ll have plenty of cool 80’s accessories to fix you up with if you can’t find any.
