Electric Run is the best thing that's ever happened to EDM lovers and runners combined. It's a nighttime 5k walk/run that's being hosted all over the U.S., creating an electronic wonderland for all those who participate. With bumping beats and a series of light show lands, runners feel more like they're moving to the jams at a music festival than getting in a work out with hours of running.
Participants are encouraged to dress head-to-toe in their most eccentric clothing to express their creativity and reflect exactly what the event is all about -- being fun and different. Electric Run will take place in pretty much any major city you can imagine, with each location differing from the others in one way or another. The series of light shows at each event will be unique in its own way, combining five to seven features, including: glowing trees that light up to the beat of the music, run-through laser tunnels with platforms to take a short dance break, nearby bodies of water lit up in bright colors, glowing monuments and neon colors everywhere.
Electric Run is open to people of all ages and participants can choose to run independently or in a team of four or more for $5 less per person. Aside from an epic light show, the perks of the event include sick Electric Run gear like men's and women's t-shirts, glow necklaces and bracelets and sunglasses. You might be sad that it's all come to an end when you finally reach the finish line, but not to worry, there's an after party. Let the dancing commence as the light show continues and DJs spin beats from the latest and greatest jams.
Don't get it twisted. This is a 5k music festival, but not a rave. Tripping balls at Electric Run is not the way to go, as officials are adamant about making a fun and healthy environment for the event that benefits different charities in every city.
