I am a partner with Ready.Set.Glow 5K. In exchange for my promotion of the event, I will receive complimentary entries for my family. All opinons are my own.
We are ending the week with the Friday Five 2.0, hosted by Fairytales and Fitness and Running on Happy.
Be sure to link up with your own posts, and visit our hosts and other bloggers in the group!
Today’s topic is LOVE, so let’s talk about
The second annual Ready. Set. Glow 5K will take place on March 31, starting at 7:45 PM at the Ring Power complex in World Golf Village. This event is a group effort between three local schools, with all funds raised going to benefit those institutions.
READY. SET. GLOW 5K raises money for some amazing schools!
In its first year, the Ready. Set. Glow 5K raised $4000 each for Wards Creek Elementary, Mill Creek Elementary and Pacetti Bay Middle Schools. These neighborhoods love their schools, and this event is geared towards the students, teachers, staff and administration who make those schools so great.
READY. SET. GLOW 5K brings families together for fit fun!
A nighttime run with music and all the glow in the dark fun you can handle? What’s not to love? I’m not typically a fan of nighttime running, but surround me with neon lights and I am totally on board.
Oh. The kids love it, too!
READY. SET. GLOW 5K supports the local community!
With sponsors from the World Golf Village area, and a race directing team made up of members of three different PTAs and the ladies from Empower Coaching, this event boosts the businesses that help the area thrive. It’s a wonderful thing when communities can help each other out in such a positive way.
READY. SET. GLOW 5K is the only nighttime, glow-in-the-dark, timed 5K in the area!
Where else are you going to get this kind of experience in your own backyard?
You have to admit – this is a sight to see. I can’t wait to be a part of it.
READY. SET. GLOW 5K is fun for all ages and abilities!
Ready. Set. Glow 5K is open to runners and walkers of every age. With a one mile fun run and a timed 5K race, there is something for everyone. Last year, race organizers hoped for 500 participants and were thrilled when 623 people crossed the finish line. In March, the race hopes to see 750 registrants donning glowsticks and hitting the course!

Have you ever run a glow run?
Awwww this looks super fun, especially for the kiddos! My daughters and I were supposed to do a glow run last summer but man oh man did we ever get rained/lightning’d out! It was so brutal they had to cancel the race.

This looks awesome. I would like this run much better than a color run because you still get to run with neon colors, but it’s way less messy!
Kimberly G recently posted…5 Cookbooks To Love
Agreed. Color runs are fun, but this is a lot neater. Except for the glow in the dark body paint I think I am going to buy to be extra fancy 🙂
Kimberly Hatting says
This looks like a great event! I volunteered at a local glow run (of sorts) last summer, and the kids really had a blast (and some of the adults, too).
Kimberly Hatting recently posted…Cross-Training…what’s not to LOVE?
The kids love it for sure! Late bedtimes, glowing, running at night! It’s got all the stuff!
Mary Beth Jackson says
