FAMILY GLOW RUN

Friday, September 24, 2021

Enjoy a stroll or run with the whole family under the spell of the night. Starting at Peachland's Heritage Park, this all-ages event will include a 5K run or a 3K walk or run along scenic Beach Ave. Check-in will take place at Heritage Park from 6:00-7:00 pm. The race begins at 7:30 pm. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a maximum of 100 registrants will be permitted. Also, start/finish line activities and spectating have been suspended from this year's run to avoid any crowding.

This event is all about fun! Dress up in your best and brightest clothing (think 1980s workout gear!), don some glow sticks, lace up your running/walking shoes, and help us light up the night!
