This year City Island Glow in the Park will have a theme. We are super psyched to head back to the 80's! Dude, it would be so totally lame if you didn't, like, get in the mood and party hardy with us. So come check out our wicked fresh beats and rad hairdos. But don't be a poser and leave your killer leg warmers at home. You'll miss your chance to win the tubular costume contest! Yes, we said costume contest! And, like duh, we'll have plenty of cool 80's accessories to fix you up with if you can't find any.

New this year! Get an 80's style Glow in the Park Tank Top!

What to expect:

YOU will light up the night as you run a 5k – no speed needed!

Before the race, you and your friends will each get a goody bag of glow accessories and paint to adorn yourselves to the height of glowy fashion

Now to brave the seas of foam (industrial machines spewing foam to the beat of some hot music), the rain storm of UV glow water (volunteers will spray a rainbow of glow water as you run past), and the dust cloud of neon powder (volunteers will toss handfuls of neon goodness to make sure you are covered in color and glowing like a champ)!

Once you have triumphantly reached the finish line you will be greeted by a celebratory dance party and a chance to show off your accumulation of glow and your fabulous dance moves.

Enhance your glow experience by renting a blacklight headlight!

Glow in the Park has doubled the foam and will be adding special UV glow tunnels at each of the color stations! We are also including a Glow in the Park t-shirt with every registration received before June 14th! (sign up by June 14th to guarantee your free shirt. Glowers who do not register before t-shirt ordering deadline will not be guaranteed a shirt with their packet, but may have a chance to purchase a t-shirt on the day of the event)
