Glow run to raise money for Rockbridge Area Hospice


glow runRockbridge Area Hospice announced the return of the nighttime 5K Glow Run and Walk for this year’s annual Hospice Hustle at the Lexington Golf and Country Club on Saturday, September 17th.

Participants will run or walk through the golf course cart paths lit by glow sticks and all of the glow decor that the runners/walkers can manage to wear; head lamps are encouraged!  Race planners have worked hard to provide extra “glow” to light the course, as well as directional signs to assist in navigating the 5K.

Adult runner/walker pre-registration $15.00, kids 12 and under are free. Registration for adults includes a race t-shirt if registered by August 31st and a BBQ meal sponsored by Kendal at Lexington. The BBQ meal is also included with the free kids 12 and under registration.

Runners and walkers are encouraged to dress up, be creative, wear as much glow attire as possible – the brighter the better.  Prizes are awarded to the individual with the best costume and the team with the best costume theme.

This year’s event will run from 5:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. and will feature live music (5:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m) by Bruce Allen,Zumba warm-up provided by Fitness Your Way, face painting and more! Drinks and BBQ meals for additional guests/non-participating sponsors, etc. will be available for purchase. Participants are encouraged to stick around for the awards and after party with music by DJ TREVSTO.
