The race course follows a new route that incorporates the Hurley Fitness Trail at the Blountville campus. The course is a double loop 5K entirely on the Northeast State campus.  There are a few hills on the fitness trail, but the rest of the course should be flat and fast. A map of the course can be viewed when registering online.

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. All race participants also receive an event t-shirt.

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.
