Tips for your 1st Glow Race

Tips for Your 1st Glow Race

Thinking about running in a glow run?

We had a lot of fun at our very 1st glow run with the Neon Vibe 5K and we’ve enjoyed a few more since then which is why I’ve created a list of a few tips to have the best glow run experience possible.

1. Wear as much white or neon clothes as possible to maximize your glow

2. Find extra fun glow accessories

You will get some with your race, but to really stand out, look for some creative accessories online or you can stock up at a local dollar store.

5. Bring a ziploc bag or waterproof case if you plan on bringing your phone with you during the race otherwise you might want to bribe someone to take pictures for you

6. Have a plan of where to meet in case you get separated from each other during the race

I have run a few of these types of races now and we have gotten temporarily separated from our group a few times. It’s good to have a plan in place or your race experience will not be as fun.

7. If you have sensitive eyes, wear sunglasses to keep the color out of your eyes

8. Pack extra clothes

There is a good chance that you might not want to ride home covered head to toe in colored chalk.

9. Bring garbage bags or towels to cover your car seats

Trust me, you don’t want you car to be covered in colored dust.

10. Keep in mind that not everyone can rock a full covered neon body suit, but this event is all about fun, so who cares!!! Just be prepared to dance!

Remember that a fun run is just that..FUN! So don’t take it too seriously. If you wanted a serious competitive race, you should have signed up for one. Just enjoy making memories by running through a rainbow of color in the dark.

    This looks so fun! I’ve always wanted to do a glow race. Was it hard to run in the dark, or was there enough light around? I found some cool led poi balls that could be fun accessories. Thanks for this great post. You’ve inspired me to sign up for the next glow run that comes my way!
