City of Carrollton Holds Third Annual Glow Run 5K Event
The City of Carrollton is excited to offer the third annual Glow Run 5K on Saturday, September 25 at 8:30 p.m. Arrive early for the pre-party, where a live DJ will get everyone pumped for the race. 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.
There will also be a glow paint bar, photobooth, and additional glow gear for pickup prior to heading to the starting line. After the race, head back to the party tent and cool down or keep dancing.
