About This Activity

What is Foam Glow™ 5K?

Foam Glow™ 5k is a unique experience focused less on speed and more on Glow in the dark fun with friends and family. Glowing runners come from all different ages, shapes, sizes, and speeds; but everyone who registers to glow has the time of their life. Whether you are a long term runner or a walk around the park stroller, the 3 miles of the Foam Glow™ course will have you shining bright and waiting for the next run.

How does it work?

The Foam Glow™ 5K has been setup with very simple rules:

1) White shirt (any white T-shirt will work) worn at the start line. The more white you wear the better.

2) Foam Glow™ covered runners sprinting through Foam Glow™ Zones to the Finish!

Runner/walkers begin the 5k at the start line like a brand new canvas. By the end, they look like they fell into a tie-dye machine and are covered with different colored glowing foam under black lights.

What is the Foam Glow™?

Along the running path you will find Foam Glow™ Zone's, which are associated with a designated color: green, pink, or orange. As the runners/walkers reach the Foam Glow™ Zones, They they will run through different foam that Glows in the Dark under our high intensity black lights. All products are 100% natural and non-toxic. At the end of the race there will be a Foam Glow™ Party filled with Music pumping from the stage, Foam Glow™ and tons of black lights!

Every Registered Runner gets:

Foam Glow™ Event T-Shirt

Foam Glow™ Bib

Glow in the Dark Foam Glow Tattoo

The best night of their life

What about the finish line?

Are you ready for the best After Race party on the PLANET. After the finish, participants are encouraged to stick around, celebrate, and see exactly how much fun one person can handle. We will have food, Foam Glow™, and festivities that will make your Foam Glowed head spin.
