_ The 2022 Foam Glow - Santa Cruz:
Foam Glow 5K™ is a fun filled experience exposing runners to Glowing Foam and a ton of Blacklight’s all over the course. Glowing runners come from all different ages, shapes, sizes, and speeds. Whether you are a long term runner or a walk around the park stroller, the 3 miles of the Foam Glow 5K™ course will have you shining bright and waiting for the next run.
The Foam Glow 5K™ has been setup with very simple rules:
Runner/walkers begin the 5k at the start line like a brand new canvas. By the end, they look like they fell into a tye-dye machine and are covered with different colored foam that glows under black lights.
WHAT IS THE FOAM GLOW™?
Along the running path you will find Foam Glow™ Zone’s, which are associated with a designated color: orange, pink, or blue. As the runners/walkers reach the Foam Glow™ Zones, They they will run through different color foam that Glows in the Dark under our high intensity black lights. All products are 100% natural and non-toxic. At the end of the race there will be a Foam Glow 5K™ after party filled with Music pumping from the stage, Foam Glow™ and tons of black lights!
EVERY REGISTERED RUNNER GETS:
– Foam Glow 5K™ Event T-Shirt
– Get blasted by foam at our Glow Zones
– The best night of their life
WHAT ABOUT THE FINISH LINE?
Are you ready for the best After Race party in the world? After the finish, participants are encouraged to stick around, celebrate, and see exactly how much fun one person can handle. In most locations we will have food, Foam Glow 5K™, and festivities that will make your Foam Glowed head spin.
