How does it work?
|Step 1||Step 2||Step 3||Step 4|
|Get registered!||Wear a white shirt. Don’t have one? |
Don’t worry! There are some pretty awesome Skechers Blacklight Run™ t-shirts given out to you at registration.
Throw it on before you get to the starting line and you’re good to go!
|Run, walk, or skip like the wind! |
However you want to get to the finish line works for us. But at the end of the race, you want to be covered in Skechers Blacklight Run™ UV Glow Powder. The more, the better!
It glows in our Blacklight Zones™ and lets you rock out in the dark at our Skechers Blacklight After Run Party™.
|If we had to insert a step 4, it would be to enjoy every minute of this incredible race. |
It’s the first of its kind, and we want you owning it while you get Glowed™ in Glow Powder™, laughing with your loved ones.
Oh, and sticking around to enjoy the after party. Duh. Did we even have to remind you?
What is the GLOW™?
Along our course, you’ll be lucky enough to find Blacklight Zones™. These are the key to your glowing power! Each of them are associated with an awesomely bright color: green, pink, and orange. As you reach each Blacklight Zone™, you’ll be showered with Skechers Blacklight Run™ UV Neon Glow Powder. Cover yourself in it, for the best is yet to come! This powder, which is all 100% natural and non-toxic, glows under our high beam blacklights every time you reach a zone.
What about the finish line?
We did say the best was yet to come, didn’t we? When you reach the finish line, you also receive a FREE Skechers Blacklight Run™ Glow Packet for the best after race party in the WORLD! So stick around, celebrate with us, get some free stuff, and show us how much GLOW you can handle.
Like they say, after the party is the after party! The Skechers Blacklight Run After Party™ has more fun and swag than you can handle. You’ll get tons of Blacklight Run™ UV Glow Powder, Blacklight Run™ freebies, and plenty of LED gifts given out at the stage. We encourage you to stay and celebrate the night away. We’ll be dancing and enjoying “Celebration Glow Throw” every 15 minutes. Bring your camera, take some selfies, and share your best #BlacklightRun glow pics with us. It’s a night filled with memories you’ll never forget—and one we will never forget either!

As soon as they turn 6 years of age, they will need to register and have a race bib! If the race recipient is under the age of 18 a parent guardian must sign a waiver on their behalf and be chaperoned with an adult over the age of 18.

No spectators allowed to the after party as we need all everyone to be registered! They are not coming out of Skechers Blacklight Run™ after party clean!
Do the “Skechers Blacklight Zones” affect runner vision? Or breathing?
The Skechers Blacklight RunTM zones are basically food grade powder and are 100% natural and SAFE. As with any substance, you want to keep it out of your eyes . Some “Skechers Blacklight Runners” opt to wear glasses or goggles for their eyes and use a bandana or dust mask for their mouths.
In summary: We work pretty hard to make it so our precious “Skechers Blacklight Runners” get as much or as little Glow on them as they like.
Do you have “cleaning stations” at the finish after party?
With a good dusting off, you aren’t 100% clean, but you are totally good for the drive home. It is actually pretty fun to see people still colored up around town after Blacklight Run™ events. If you wish to preserve your t-shirt, just spray your shirt with white vinegar and iron for a long lasting memory.
How does the color affect the inside of cars?
Most people bring some towels for the insides of their cars, just in case. It’s like driving home from the swimming pool in your wet swimsuits.
Are cameras and phones safe to have in the Blacklight Zones?
Our race photographers are totally fine shooting from a medium distance (25-50 feet). If you want to get shots right in the midst of the “Glow” we recommend covering cameras/phones with plastic wrap.
