City of Carrollton Holds Second Annual Glow Run 5K Event
The City of Carrollton is excited to offer the second annual Glow Run 5K on Saturday, September 26 at 9 p.m. New COVID-19 safety measures will be in place for this year’s event. So, lace-up your sneakers and get ready to glow.
The race will start and finish at McInnish Dog Park (1845 Legends Trail) and will route through the adjacent McInnish Sports Complex. Participants will need to park at the dog park or at the circular parking lot south of the park on Legends Trail. The main entrance to McInnish Sports Complex will be closed.
For those who want to take a more leisurely stroll, participants can take the half-mile marker shortcut for a one-mile fun run/walk to the finish line. Dogs are allowed to run with their owners at no additional charge.
To allow for social distancing, participants must preregister for one of four time slots beginning at 9 p.m., 9:45 p.m., 10:30 p.m., or 11:15 p.m. A maximum of 50 people will be allowed to sign up during each time period. Participants will be grouped by pace into heats and spread out within the start chute.
Preregister before Monday, September 21 by 11:59 p.m. to receive the $25 rate. Price increases to $35 on race day. Changes to registration after September 21 will incur a $5 change fee. Walkups will be accepted the evening of the event if space allows, and registrants may be moved to an earlier time slot. Preregistration guarantees glow gear, race T-shirt, and timing chip.
Packet pickup will be Friday, September 25 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Rosemeade Recreation Center (1330 E. Rosemeade Parkway).
