The GLOW Run returns to Northeast State Sept. 30

Get your glow sticks, glow-paint, and anything else to light up the night when Northeast State hosts the three-mile GLOW Run race on Sept. 30 at the Blountville campus, 2425 Highway 75, next to Tri-Cities Regional Airport.

Runners can adorn themselves in their best fluorescent fashions, paint up with some illuminating neon colors, or accessorize themselves with fluorescent face paint and glow sticks. Race start time is 8:00 p.m. The course follows a mostly flat terrain with some medium hills.

The race registration fee is $20 before Sept. 29 and $25 on the day of race. All runners who register before race day receive an event T-shirt. Participants can register now at www.werunevents.com.

Runners will be registered in age brackets with GLOW Run trophies, ribbons, and medallions awarded to first-place winners in each category. The runner decorated with the most “glow” will get a $100 gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Sponsored by the College’s Honors Program, the GLOW Run was initiated in 2012 during the College’s Because of You campaign, a weeklong event of activities dedicated to raising money for student scholarships. All race entry fees and proceeds will benefit student scholarships at Northeast State.
