So if you haven’t noticed, this year’s 5k trend is pretty awesome. It’s a mixture of black lights, neon glow paint, dance music, flashing lights, and did we mention it’s a race? If you’ve seen all your friends post pictures from their glow run experiences, and you’re dying to post your own, here is your chance! LivingSocial is hosting their own glow-in-the-dark 5k at Turner Field in Atlanta, GA! If you’ve ever experienced a LivingSocial event, you know this one should definitely not be missed. Did I mention FIT Radio is providing the tunes?! Watch the video and check out the “need to know” details. Get ready to put all your friend’s glow party pics to shame!
So this past weekend we experienced the latest 5k trend, The Electric Run! The night race started at 8:50 pm at Atlanta Motor Speedway and we were dressed in our FIT Radio gear and glow painted up so we made a quick pit stop at the Step and Repeat before heading to the starting line
With the new year comes more exciting races to get everyone active. This year is definitely the year of night races, more specifically The Electric Run. Do you see this picture, how could it not be?! Reasons why: It takes place at night (party hours), you get crazy fun glow swag like sunglasses, bangles and necklaces, there is music playing the whole time so no worries about plugging your ear buds in, and (drum roll) as if it couldn’t get any more fun, there’s an after party. Yup. Does this sound like the most fun 5k ever or what?
Each event is unique. Depending on the event you participate in you may experience many of the following:
Glowing neon trees changing colors to match the music
Tunnels with dancing patterns and figures on the walls, ceilings, and floors
Lakes and rivers glowing in other-worldly hues
Tunnels of light created by a rainbow of lasers
Glowing arches and columns
Neon saguaro cactus
Red rock cliffs glowing in psychedelic colors and patterns
Glowing arches changing color in tempo
Colored fountains dancing to the beat
Entire buildings lit so brightly that they can be seen from space
And so much more.
If you haven’t signed up yet, don’t stress, there’s still time! Register as an individual or save money and have more fun by registering as a team of 4 or more. The race takes place at 8:50 pm, May 11th, at Atlanta Motor Speedway! If you’re not from Atlanta and want to run, there are plenty of dates to come on their website.
Check out their video and you can see what I’m talking about!

FIT Radio was invited to provide music for the Finish Line at The Color Run this past weekend at Piedmont Park in Atlanta. Since we all talked about how exciting it looked months before while we sat in the office, we were all thrilled to receive the opportunity to partner up with such a unique race. We brought out a team of Promo Girls with FIT Radio stencils and neon orange paint; as the girls ran around tagging people, they also got in on the action (see Abby, a FIT Radio promo girl, covered in paint to the left).
The Color Run was something none of us have ever seen before! It honestly was the Happiest 5K you could ever run! There were people playing around with colored powder everywhere, throwing it in the air, as they danced with their friends. The energy of the crowd was incredible! We may be a little biased, but we believe that it had something to do with our FIT Radio DJ Rimby who was providing non-stop, high-energy music throughout the entire event. All-in-all, it was a great day, and the most fun we have ever had promoting FIT Radio. Kudos to The Color Run for such a great idea!
Look like fun? Uh, we think so!! That’s why FIT Radio will be DJ’ing the Color Run events in Atlanta next week (March 31st at Piedmont Park and April 7th at Atlanta Motor Speed Way). Psyched doesn’t even begin to explain our attitude. There is nothing more fun than getting really dirty in bright colored paint… And getting your workout done while you’re doing it. Come join our Promo Girls and DJs at these events! The Piedmont Park event is sold out, but Atlanta Motor Speed Way is still on sale: Register Now! If you have a crazy training session that day and don’t feel like running, you should still come out and join the action! It will be a day to remember. See More: The Color Run
