Blacklight Run - Chicago

What is Blacklight Run™?


Blacklight Run™ is a unique night 5K fun run focused less on speed and more on UV Neon Glowing fun with friends and family. Glowing participants come from all different ages, shapes, sizes, and speeds; every participant will get Glowed™ and has the time of their life. Whether

you are an avid runner or a walk around the park walker, the 3 miles of the Blacklight Run™ course will have you glowing and waiting for the next one!

How does it work?

The Blacklight Run™ has been setup with very simple rules:

1) Wear a white shirt (any white T-shirt will work or wear your awesome commemorative Blacklight Run™ T-Shirt given with your registration) to be worn at the start line.

2) You will finish covered in Blacklight Run™ UV Neon Glow Powder, that will glow in our Blacklight Zones™ and at the Blacklight Run After Party™.

By the end, you will look like you fell into a Ghost Buster's movie (minus the slime) and covered with different colored Blacklight Run™ UV Neon Glow Powder. This is the first of its kind at night and is quickly sweeping the nation!


Each participant will receive:

- Commemorative white Blacklight Run™ T-Shirt
- Blacklight Run™ Glow in the Dark Tattoo
- Swag from Sponsors (varies by location)
- Blacklight Run™ Race Bib
- Donation to local charity
- Blacklight Run™ Glow Pack given at the finish line!
- Admission to Blacklight Run After Party™


What is the Glow™?

Along the course you will find Blacklight Zone's™, which are associated with a designated color: green, pink, and orange. As runners/walkers reach the Blacklight Zones™ they are showered with Blacklight Run™ UV Neon Glow Powder that glows with our high beam blacklights at every zone. All products are 100% natural and non-toxic.


What about the finish line?

At the finish line receive your FREE Blacklight Run™ Glow Packet. Then are you ready for the best after race party on the PLANET! You are encouraged to stick around, celebrate, and see exactly how much GLOW you can handle. The Blacklight Run After Party™ will have lots of Blacklight Run™ UV Glow Powder, Blacklight Run™ swag and lots LED gifts given at the stage. All while dancing to the best beats and a "Celebration Glow Throw" every 15 minutes at the after party. Bring your cameras and take lots of pictures, it will be a night of great memories.
