AUGUSTA, Ga. (FNN NEWS) – The Blacklight Run is touted as “the brightest, most fun 5k out there,” according to its website. It tours in various cities across the country and ends in a festive explosion of colors deliciously illuminated in blacklight.
I was particularly excited about running in this blacklight run because of the high energy house music and having an excuse to get drenched in glow powder. The check-in was located at the Augusta Green Jackets Baseball Stadium on Saturday, September 30, 2017 and began promptly at 5:30 p.m. The race began at 7:30 p.m. and my partner and I ran the three miles in 24 minutes–not bad for having not trained for this marathon!
Here’s my brief video of the race’s end:

It was the perfect run to set aside any competitive streak, dance to the tracks of the DJ at the after party and let my hair down.
