The Night Color 5K Series is an event unlike any other. Join thousands of others to light up the night with flash lights, powdered paint, glow sticks, and other awesome neon accessories, all while listening to beats from the best local DJs. The DJ will get the party started at 7pm, when runners, walkers, skippers, and hoppers will leave every 15 minutes. Glowing gear and crazy bright costumes are not only welcome, but encouraged! Light up the night while running to the beats of the best local DJs. To maximize the amount of fun we suggest you invite all of your friends and family to join you. Kids 14 and under are also welcome and will qualify for a discounted price. Unleash your inner Picasso and join Campus Recreation and the FIU Tri Club for a fun 5K run with color (in the dark)!
