About This Activity

This is NOT your ‘normal’ race! It is way more fun.

Nocturnal 5 takes place 100% in the dark (bring reflective gear, glow stick, blinking light, flashlight/headlamps)

The course will wind through several neighborhoods, via paved paths, on trails through woods, and racers will likely encounter surprises along the way.

Two divisions

  • Easy – individuals, families, large groups (must stay together the entire race). Expect 3 – 4 miles. Open to ANY skill level.
  • Hard – individuals or smaller groups (must stay together the entire race) 6 – 8 miles [this group will run the course twice]

The purpose of the entire event is to help our neighbors via the funds raised through a race! The very moment the last person crosses the finish line. Racers, friends and family, as a whole, will do something incredible to help a special individual or family. Please don’t miss this!
