Firefly Run

Meet at Freebird's 8057 Kirby @ 7:15 Sat PM.  I will be in fluorescent yellow tank top as shown on the website.  Last minute packet pickup at the race site 6:00-8:00 PM.

Promoters have dazzled us with several nighttime "glow" runs in the past year.   The hospitality, organization, and overall quality of several fun runs 'passing through' the Greater Houston area have been less than sizzling.   On the other hand, last year Sarah, the Queen of Ruckus of Icehouse Runners, hosted this event in which our beloved Organizer, Chris, Annie, and myself aka ‘Birdman’ participated.  We enjoyed the 2012 installment of the Firefly run at Reliant Park.   This year, you have the option of having your 5k timed with a timing chip for an additional 5$.   Nevertheless, this event is very casual and informal.


A living social deal for $25 has been activated on October 15th.  Please do not procrastinate.

However, I do not think it includes the timing chip.   Still pretty cheap, with dry-fit T-shirt and many sponsors hosting a post-run party.   An overhead timing clock will probably be visible at the finish line.  

Note: All serious half/full marathon runners, 'let your hair down' and be part of a relaxing 5k.   This event is also excellent for beginner 5k runners to get a taste of the 'running event' experience.
