If you feel the need to get some physical activity while in Sin City—or want an excuse to go—it’s time to sign up for the 2013 Las Vegas GlowRun. This 5k event, scheduled for October 13th, is not your typical fun run. While it is loads of fun, participants get to dress up in costume (with prizes for the wackiest) and carry glow sticks while they run in the cool evening air. It’s like a 5k party, with thousands of revelers lining the run route, cheering you on. And when you hit that finish line, you continue the evening with world-class electronic dance music, light shows, and food and bar vendors.
Proceeds from the race go to the $50,000 Bright Future Fund, an investment fund that will be allocated to a local Las Vegas start-up. (Any registered GlowRunner from each host city may apply, and possible GlowRun funded ventures may include consumer goods, products, fashion, energy solutions, entertainment, packaging, transportation, technology and communications.)
