A glowing good time is coming to the area near Monroe homes. The Blacklight Run is heading to Evergreen Speedway. This is not your average race with an emphasis on the fastest times, but a chance for runners of any speed and skill level to get out, have a great time, and get some exercise. Not only that, but all Blacklight Runs benefit local children’s charities.
The race will take place on Saturday, November 9th. Check in starts at 2 p.m. and the race begins at 5 p.m. Early registration has ended, but regular price admission is still available for $40. The registration fee includes a t-shirt, finisher medal, temporary tattoo, race bib, a charity donation, and admission to the after party. Packet pick-up will be available from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, November 8th at Road Runner Sports in Bellevue. There will be an additional fee if runners cannot pick up their packet at this time.
Parking will be available at the event for a $20 fee. Try to carpool to save some cash. After you check in at the event, get your groove on at the pre party. There will be a chance to dance and get warmed up an hour and a half before the race. Once the race begins, participants will be released in waves. Runners are invited to stop into the Blacklight Run™ Glow Zones. Dance all you want while getting blasted with glow powder and then continue the race.
When the race is over, there will be even more dancing. Participants can head to the main stage where the DJ will be rocking. Catch free merchandise and glow gear as it’s tossed off the stage. It is going to be an unforgettable time and everyone will return to their Monroe homes tuckered out and ready for a good night’s sleep. Read more about this event and register for the Blacklight Run.
