You’ll be temporarily blinded, and totally blown away, at this new nighttime 5K that’s as much a race as a light show. The untimed run or walk features 5–10 artistic lighting experiences designed by Dreamworks and Coachella animators with dark sections separating each dazzling world. The event is September 14, 2013 at Utah’s Thanksgiving Point in Lehi. All participants receive a gender-specific shirt, LED bracelet, glow necklace, and glow sunglasses that you can sport during the run. Bring your own glowing accoutrements to bedazzle your getup. Event followed by a finish line celebration with a DJ, neon everything, dancing, and much more. electricrun.com
