Join us for our 2nd Annual Light Up the Runway Glow Run 5k and One-Mile Fun Run. (If you are not a runner, we also welcome walkers) To be held at the Rocky Mount-Wilson Airport on Saturday July 9, 2016. 


Come experience running a race on a flat, straight course like never before. If you ever wanted to PR (personal record) a 5k distance this is your chance! 
Come prepared to Glow in the dark, as each participant will get a glow bracelet with their entry fee. We also encourage you to wear bright clothing so you will stand out from the rest.

Stick around after the 5k for awards, raffles and celebration.
