The 5K-ish Glow Run presented by Tryon Investments is a fun run, jog or walk to celebrate the unveiling of North Liberty Lights –– an illuminated winter display around Liberty Centre Pond – the evening of Saturday, Jan. 28.

Two start times are available to accommodate all ages and skill levels:

  • 6 p.m. –– Runners
  • 7 p.m. –– Joggers and Walkers

All ages and strollers are welcome during both time slots, it is more important to sign up for the pace you plan to be moving to avoid bottlenecks on the trail.

If you’re serious about completing a 5K-ish length run, it is eight laps around the pond, but most importantly, we hope you enjoy this unique arctic trek on the trail at your own pace. This fun run/jog/walk isn’t timed and will not award any place prizes, but you’ll earn a glow-in-the-dark medal at the finish line.

After you’ve completed your laps around the pond, join us on the pier to claim your medal, warm up with a cup of hot chocolate — courtesy of GEICO’s gecko — and snap a picture with 6-foot-tall GLOW RUN letters.

Your registration helps make North Liberty Lights possible and includes:

  • Entry to the event
