The Rave Run

As night falls, participants in the noncompetitive Rave Run pull on neon T-shirts, don glow-in-the dark glasses, and stuff their pockets with glow sticks. Spectators look on as the throng of illuminated runners, which includes kids and adults, make their way through a 5-kilometer course that winds through city streets.

The event culminates with an after party, where DJs spin tunes and powerful black lights cast out beams that illuminate wide smiles and the secret locations of any lost arks in the vicinity. Fog machines and CO2 jets help create a high-adrenaline atmosphere as attendees dance with their glow-in-the-dark compatriots. All the fun is for a good cause; The Rave Run partners with a local charity in each participating city.

There's a groupon available until 2/16 here: http://www.groupon.com/deals/the-rave-run-shakopee-3

When that expires, you can sign up and get more info at: http://theraverun.com/

      I have a group of 4 & we r looking for the group. Anyone still here?

      April 6, 2013

    • Alex

      I had a group of 4 but we couldn't find anyone else. We hung back at the original spot for a while but ended up taking off.

    I'm sitting by a tree with a meetup sign not far from the area with the statues, but closer to the 17ave/Adams corner - hoping it'll be easier to spot since its closer to the check in point.

      Absolutely! Do I have to register separately?

    apparently, my friend previously bought her voucher on Amazon local. However, this purchase was solely a voucher, and not the registration. You still had to register officially by 3/23, using this voucher. not sure how this problem is gonna get fixed, but i thought i should let ppl know. is there a meetup spot/time for this group?

    April 5, 2013

    • Alex

      Andrew - Really sorry to hear that. I'd email [masked] ASAP. That seems to be the only way to reach them. Hope it can get resolved!

      April 5, 2013

  • Alex

    Hey all, I'll arrive at the park around 6 and will be waiting in the area with the soldier and horse statues. I'll have a meetup sign, but if you can't find me, call or text -[masked]

    Hoping to get into town by then, not sure my body will be ready for a run is power walking or skipping ok?

    March 16, 2013

    • Alex

      Yeah, this one doesn't look too serious. I'd say skipping is encouraged.

    • Brittany S.

      Um I can promise you I will not be "running." Jogging/power walking is what I will be doing.

      April 2, 2013

  • Brittany S.

    Isn't that the whole point of meetups anyways? To meet new people? 95% of time time I have gone to meetups by myself knowing I will meet a lot of cool people.

    I've never done a run before but I'm interested in this. How seriously do they take the "run" part of it. I'm afraid my back wouldn't withstand that much exertion at once. :/

    Do we have a team? It's cheaper...

    In registering for the event online using my LivingSocial voucher, the fine print mentioned that the registration needs to happen by March 23rd. Not sure if that is for these vouchers specifically or for the run overall, but thought I would let ya know so nobody misses this little time restriction.

      Awe, bummer! Thanks Jeanette. :)

    Thanks Alex! Was just going to remind people of the Living Social deal, just got it for $27.

    February 26, 2013

  • Alex

    Just a reminder - even if you got the Groupon (or living social deal), you still need to sign up at http://theraverun.com/, or you won't be eligible to participate.

    February 21, 2013

    • Lindsay

      I totally forgot... thanks!

      February 21, 2013

  • Naomi

    FYI - there's a deal on Living Social for this through 2/28

  • Brittany S.

    Should we be registering as an individual or as a group?

    February 18, 2013

    • Alex

      I think individual should be fine and we can all meet up before the race and run together.

    Already bought my ticket..;-)
