Event Details

Are you ready to light up the night for hospice? After three years of bringing light and life to downtown, we are taking READY SET GLOW worldwide with our virtual 5K in partnership with Seven Mountains Media!

It's easy as 1 2 3 to be a part of the glow, in your own neighborhood or favorite jogging route!

1. Register online for $25 - you'll receive a shirt, a race medal, certificate of completion, and of course the exclusive access code to be part of the READY SET GLOW SECRET ENTERTAINMENT! (Race packets will arrive by mail approximately 2 weeks before raceday)

Feeling Special? Register as a Ready Set Glow VIP for $35 - You'll receive everything listed above, with a Sport-Tek shirt instead of cotton, PLUS Glow Swag!

Buy the $5 add on to run in memory of a special someone who has passed away- his or her name will be added to your Certificate of Completion and be listed on the live stream event scroll on race night!

2. Recruit a few friends and map out your own 5k route- in any city or town- that you will light up the night for hospice on July 18th! Remember, you can still glow while practicing social distancing! Each participant will need to register to receive a race packet and access code.

3. Share this event on social media to get more people involved in READY SET GLOW- a worldwide expression of lighting up our communities together, while distant!

So, really, how does it work? Really, it's that easy! 

PICTURE IT: thousands of people, throughout the country, dressing up in glow in the dark outfits, running/walking/skipping/cartwheeling their own personal 5K (or less...we're all winners here) while lighting up your community in solidarity and support for hospice patients who desperately need your fireflies dancing in the summer night...

What's with the access code?

CareFirst has partnered with Seven Mountains Media to bring unified entertainment to all race participants, via Livestream and a special radio frequency!

This means before the race starts, regardless of where you live, you can participate in pre-race warmups, give shout outs to your loved ones who you may be running in memory of, share selfies, videos, and countdown to race time! Throughout the race, energy pumping tunes will play! At the end of the event, participants will join together in unison for a special closing ceremony!

Seriously, have you registered yet? What are you waiting for?
