When does it start?
Pre-party starts at 7pm, with DJs, food trucks & plenty of action! The first wave of the race will start around 9:20 pm.
What do I get with my registration fee?
Glow Go! will feature amazing sound and light shows, electrifying performers and a unique sensory experience! In addition to all of this, participants will receive an awesome event shirt, post race refreshments, Glow SWAG (stuff like bracelets, necklace, glasses, etc.) and an AWESOME finish line EXPERIENCE and PARTY!
How much lighting and music is on the course?
There will be approximately 3-4 sensory EXPERIENCE ZONES on the course, each with a different mood/theme. Some will be more bright and energetic. While some will be more dark and trance-like. All will offer a completely unique multi-sensory experience! In between these E-Zones will be areas of relative quiet and low light. These areas will last just a few minutes to give the senses a break before entering the next E-Zone. Don't worry, Glow Go!! volunteers and your fellow runners will provide enough light and energy in these areas to make it safe and fun in between E-Zones!
Is Glow Go! a rave?
While Glow Go! will feature many of the same sound and light elements that may be found at a rave, the focus of Glow Go! is on healthy activity and celebration with friends. Much of the music is Electronic Dance Music and other high energy formats that are sure to evoke upbeat and happy emotions for ALL. There is absolutely no tolerance for drugs at Glow Go!
Is this a timed event?
NEY! Glow Go! is not a 'race', it's an experience! Enjoy yourself, take your time and take in the sights and sounds of the course. If you like one particular zone or DJ on the course, don't be afraid to hang out and enjoy the experience for a bit. However, even more fun awaits you just past the finish line at the Post Race Party!!!
Can I walk the course?
Run, Walk, Skip, Dance or Shuffle your way from start to finish.
Should I bring my own Glow stuff or will it be provided?
While we will provide each participant with a t-shirt, sweat band and LED foamstick, those looking to really light it up will want to add some custom touches of their own.
Does Glow Go! benefit a charity?
Whether you're doing it for your health or for FUN, you will have peace of mind knowing that a portion of your race registration is going to a good cause. Raise RED is the official charity partner of Glow Go! 5K! Learn more about them at www.raisered.org
What about refunds?
Unfortunately, we cannot issue refunds. We do offer a credit policy that can be found on the Jam Active website.
Can someone else pick up my packet for me?
Yes! You just have to have a copy of the person's government issued ID!
May I transfer my registration to another person/event?
Unfortunately, we do not offer transfers of any type. We do offer a credit policy that can be found on the Jam Active website.
Where can I find cool glow stuff to wear?
There are a lot of great websites out there with fun accessories. Here are a few: coolglow.com, ebay.com, glowstickfactory.com. Local costume shops and party supply shops should also have some awesome stuff. Get creative! Prizes will be given out to our favorite costumes.
Can kids participate?
