Glow on the Greenbelt

Show your glow!  This event provides an opportunity for our community to come together, have fun, and squeeze in a little exercise along the beautiful Boise River greenbelt in Eagle.  We encourage everyone attending to dress in your best glow gear.  We'll have black lights, a DJ, music, food and drink to make your experience great.  

This 2-mile paved greenbelt course includes a photo op, with a bubble machine and black lights, waiting for you at the finish.  At the park we will have the party ready for you!

There is no timing or expectation...Complete the fun at your own pace.  We'll provide the canvas, you provide the color!

RACE CHECK-IN: 7:30pm - 8:15pm
Upon arriving for the event approach the green City of Eagle tent for check-in.  You will receive your race number, start time assignment, headlamp, and shirt (if ordered).  Check-in ends promptly at 8:15 pm.  Please plan accordingly.  Only registered adults will receive these items.   

FOOD/DRINK VENDORS: 7:30pm - 10:30pm
Plan for a late dinner, snack, or drink with our great vendors!  Adults 21+ may present ID with our craft beer and wine vendor to receive a wristband.  All alcohol must be kept in designated areas.

Your race number, received at race check-in, will correspond to your starting time.  As an example:  All 100s will start at 8:30 pm, all 200s start at 8:35 pm, etc.  This staggering of start times will reduce congestion on the course.  Families participating together will be placed with other families and will leave the start area after single adult and adult groups. 

Start times will be staggered by the following groups.  Start times for all groups announced the week prior to the race. 

  • Adults (Individual & Groups) - Running
  • Adults (Individual & Groups) - Walking
  • Families (with children participating on course)

*Adults with children in strollers or other carriers will be asked to leave with the final grouping for safety and to reduce course congestion.
