Next Saturday, October 13th, is Dallas’ 3rd Annual Glow Run!
This annual Glow Run has always been an event our community has enjoyed since day one. The first year the Glow Run was held, only 100 people were expected. Over 500 people joined in the festivities and each year they continue to grow. City of Dallas partners with national and local sponsors who want to reach hundreds of event participants and their families in an engaging and entertaining environment. With all the fun, it is no surprise that people continue to join in on the festivities year after year.
What is the Glow Run? The Glow Run is a Halloween themed glow in the dark 5k run or walk and the proceeds will go to Christmas Cheer. Dallas Christmas Cheer is a local non-profit program that provides food assistance to children and families in need over the holiday season. This is a great way to spread the holiday feeling to those in our community who are in need such as seniors or families going through hard times.
The registration deadline is Friday, October 5th at Dallas City Hall by 5:30 pm. You can also register on race day at the Academy Building between 6 pm and 7 pm. The cost to participate is $25 per a person. A team or family of four or more can expect a discount of $3 per a participants so gather everyone you know, however you must turn in forms together.
The 5k course will start and finish at the Academy Building in historic downtown Dallas, corner of Main St and Academy St. The course will consist of a mix of paved and trail surfaces through Dallas City Park. Runners will receive a head lamp, glow stick, and glow paint. The City Park will be decorated for the event by local community businesses, and will have a foam machine waiting at the finish line as no good race ends clean. Dress up and have fun. Costumes are encouraged!
We hope you all have run, and be safe!
