About This Activity

Fast and flat course!

Do you have someone special in your life who you want to run for? Maybe it's someone who you are thankful for or someone who could use a little more support this year. Whether someone you know has a medical/mental illness, cancer, financial struggles, job loss, etc., or could just use a little "pick me up" with a show of support, this race is for you! This night race will "Light Up" that person's life and you can show them how much you support them. Each participant will receive a certificate to give to that person in their life they want to "Light Up." In addition, each participant who crosses the finish line will receive a finisher's medal to keep for themselves!

NEO Fitness Group and CrossFit Intent present this unique event where a CrossFit Competition will start the evening off. At 8:15pm, the kids (8 and under) will take on a FREE, fun, adventure run. Finally at 8:45pm, we will "Light Up" the night with a glow run that is open for everyone of all ages and abilities! **CrossFit competition, sign up is at, search CrossFit Intent. Runners and walkers sign up here at Run Sign Up.
