The Electric Run 5K Is Coming to Philly (Video)

Get decked out in your blinkiest running clothes for this one.

Remember how awesome glow sticks were when you were a kid? This race is basically the living, breathing, adult version of a glow stick. The idea is to get yet yourself as lighted-up (lit-up?) as possible and run a 5K. At night.

From the website: “Electric Run is a 5K run, a show, participation art, and celebration of life. Incredibly talented artists and lighting technicians with experience creating beautiful art and light at Coachella, Dreamworks Animations, and some of Vegas’ hottest shows have come together to create a world that will fill you with wonder.”

Awesome, right? So far, little more than a date has been posted for the Philly run. At the very least, you can mark your calendar (in highlighter yellow, of course) for July 20th. Sign up to receive notifications about the local race here. And stay tuned—we’ll bring you more details when we have ’em.

In the meantime, get hyped by watching the video below. Looks like fun!
