For three years, hundreds of runners and walkers have brightened up Blount County with the annual Glow Trot 5K. And each shining step has raised money for vital missions work in Haiti—over $20,000 so far. And now’s your chance to light up the night again in 2017!

There will be a new kid's area this year featuring bounce houses, carnival games, pony rides, crafts and lots of other fun activities. Punch cards will be available for $10 each when you arrive. All proceeds benefit the kids in Haiti...Kids Helping Kids! Festivities start at 5:30. So come early!

The 5K race will start near the football stadium and will proceed to County Farm Rd. You follow County Farm Rd to William Blount Dr and then enter the 9th Grade Academy. You make a loop around the Academy and then take a right onto Stadium Drive. You will then run back close to the start/finish line and run a second loop of the same route. After the second loop you will take a right through the parking lot to the far end and make a loop to the left. For the finish you will enter the track area, run three quarters length, exit and the start/finish line will be shortly after back to the left.

The 1 mile fun run/walk is 1 loop of the 5K course.
