Night Nation Run: Crazy Nighttime 5K/Music Festival Happening in May
Have you ever thought something was missing on your runs? You know, like lights, lasers, glow gear, DJs and electronic dance music? If so, your expectations for a run are pretty high — but you’re in luck: the Night Nation Run crew is looking to deliver on those expectations come May.
The Night Nation Run, a nighttime music festival/5K combo, is coming to Chester this spring and it’s, in a word, unique. There are multiple concert stages scattered throughout the 5K racecourse that allow runners to take a “breather” and get their rave on with top electronic dance music DJs in between their dancing, skipping, jumping — or, you know, running —to the finish line. The 5K ends at the main stage with an after-party, because of course.
The event will go down at 8 p.m. on May 14th at the Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, home of the Philadelphia Union. Make sure to register quickly if you’re interested; signing up before Wednesday January 20th at 11:59 p.m. will get you $29 admission. After that, registration goes up to $60. Registration includes a Night Nation T-shirt, a glow necklace, free giveaways and admission to the Night Nation after party. Donating $1 to Stand Up To Cancer, their official charity, also gets you an “I Stand Up For” race bib that can be customized to honor a loved one.
