Registration is now open on active.com for August 24th, 2013.
What is Sioux Glow?
Sioux Glow promises to be one of the most talked about 5K Run/Walk experiences in South Dakota. On August 24th, participants will wind through downtown Sioux Falls starting and ending at Falls Park. We light up the dark with glowing runners making their way through this scenic 3.1 mile course. The 5K is followed by a post-race after party featuring live music and a beer garden (for those participants who are 21 and over). This after party is open to runners and for a small cost to non-runners. This evening promises to be a BLAST so grab your friends and come GLOW with us!
What about the route?
This course consists of 3.1 miles of glow in the dark fun where you will find multiple black light zones, glow stations and thousands of runners decked out in their best glow gear. The Glow Run will also feature DJs cranking out “fist pumping” music to keep you motivated along the way. The course ends at the Falls Park where the band will be playing and spectators will be cheering, welcoming you to the after party.
The 5K will be an incredible event, but you definitely do not want to miss this after party. This is not your typical post run party. Our participants are invited to the best glow party in South Dakota featuring thousands of glowing runners and walkers dancing the night away. And, for our participants over the age of 21, there will be a beer garden serving ice cold beer for a small fee. We will also have vendors selling a variety of food in case you ran up an appetite. This will all take place outdoors in Falls Park.
If you are not a runner/walker but more of a spectator, you are still welcome to come party with us. For FREE, you will have access to the beer garden (once again, if you are over 21) and to the party. Wear glow gear and come support your friends or family. You can be waiting at the finish line for them with a cold beer. Non-participants are welcome to enjoy the band and the beer garden while the wait for the participants to return.
We welcome everyone from experienced runners to walkers. There is no minimum age, so those under 18 are more than welcome to participate. I am sorry, but strollers and pets will not be allowed. We encourage everyone to dress in original glow gear. Prizes will be awarded to the best dressed individuals and teams based on gender categories. So, be creative!
Participants will receive a glow in the dark Sioux Glow shirt, loads of glow swag (which will mostly consist of bending glow sticks) and entrance into the after party. Participants over 21 will receive their first beer on us.
