This is a family friendly community GLOW RUN 5k!  Walkers and runners of all ages are encouraged to bring your lights and your glowiest accessories and toys!  We will be giving prizes (in the 3 categories of Men/Women/Children)  at this event for the racers with the BIGGEST GLOW!  We will have a clock at the finish line for runners' personal reference, but we won't be recording times/ranks for this event.  We will also have glow-toys and glow sticks available for purchase at the race in case you forget to bring your own.

Here is what you get for pre-registering:

1. Lower entry fee (registration at the race is available for $30) 

2. 3 FREE glow  bracelets! (only with pre-registration)*

3. FREE race T-shirt (if registered before September 1st)*

4. One FREE entry into the post-race prize drawing!*

*All of these items will be in your packet during packet pickup.

Packet Pickup will be at Applebees on Rt. 26 in Oxford, Maine from 5-8pm on Thursday October 3rd, 2019.  This is where you will pick up your racing bib, any glow items you bought and your Light Up The Night T-shirt!

We will also be hosting a "Dining to Donate" from 4-9pm on October 3rd. At a "Dining to Donate" if you choose to dine at Applebees that evening (from 4-9pm) they will donate 15% of the food purchases to Moss Brook Church. 

Race Day festivities will begin at 6pm, which will include "The Glow Shop" and same day registration.  The race itself will begin promptly at 7:00pm on Saturday October 5, 2019. Some parking will be available on Aldrich Avenue with overflow parking at the Gouin Field complex nearby.  The race itself will start at the old Grover Gundrilling Building near the corner of Aldrich Avenue and Alpine street.  The race will include the walking path from the middle school to the high school. THIS PATH INCLUDES A FEW STAIRS and a ramp. The race will then end back at the old Grover Gundrilling building on Alpine Street (see map).  We will have a water/medical table about midway through the race and volunteers throughout the race to keep everyone heading the right direction.

Following the end of the race we will have our awards ceremony (for our racers with the BIGGEST GLOW!) and a drawing for some great prizes!  EVERY registered racer will have a ticket in the drawing, but you must be present to win!

Light Up The Night is planned as a community-building experience, to bring families closer together and let us interact in a FUN atmosphere! ...but like many race events these days, ALL money made from this event will be going to a great cause!  Moss Brook Church has been a significant part of our community for over 15 years, meeting needs and giving back to the community in many different ways. Right now they're raising funds to buy a building in order to significantly grow the impact they can have on the community. All profits raised through our 5k event will be donated to the Moss Brook Church building fund.
