The Boys & Girls Clubs of West Central Missouri is hoping area residents will again “glow their support” this week during the second annual 5K Glow Run/Walk, presented by Starline.
The run will be hosted on the State Fair Community College campus Friday. Pre-race ceremonies, including a special flashmob, will begin at 8:30 p.m. with the race starting at 8:45 p.m. New this year, a portion of the event proceeds will be matched by SFCC to provide a scholarship for the 2016 Youth of the Year teen winner.
The event is designed for all levels of running ability, and registrations will still be accepted up to 8 p.m. on race day.
Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in all age categories: 55 and up, 40 to 54, 30 to 39, 20 to 29, and under 19. For children who are too young to compete, the Club will offer a special children’s area to give parents a place to drop their child off before the race for glow-in-the-dark fun.
