NON-HOSTED EVENT!!! 5K ELECTRIC RUN

This will be a non-hosted event. I just wanted to announce this if anybody is interested in participating. I'm not a runner, but I may just go to watch.

***************************************************
From VAVi Sport and Social and the founders of Ragnar Relay comes a night run that is as much show as it is run.

Electric Run™ is a 5k run, a show, participation art, and celebration of life. One million watts of light and sound will transform the 5k course into an electric wonderland. Participants will join in the show by lighting up with glow sticks, LEDs and anything else their imagination can conjure up.

Lighting elements
In an Electric Run™ participants will run or walk 5 kilometers at night to the sights and sounds of an amazing world created by stage designers from Coachella, Dreamworks animators and other talented artists. Along the run participants will run through various lighting experiences which will include different elements and different moods. Some will be very energetic others will be more etherial.

Between lighting experiences there will be periods of relative silence and no lighting effects to give the senses a moment to adjust. Various colored and non-colored lights in these “dark” areas will provide enough light to safely run but the sound and energy will be reduced for a minute or two before you run into the next world of light. You can expect lighting elements for 70% of the course with 5-10 distinct lighting expereinces. Each event is unique. Depending on the event you participate in you may experience many of the following:
Glowing neon trees changing colors to match the music
Tunnels with dancing patterns and figures on the walls, ceilings, and floors

Lakes and rivers glowing in other-worldly hues
Tunnels of light created by a rainbow or lasers
Glowing arches and columns
Neon saguaro cactus
Red rock cliffs glowing in psychedelic colors and patterns
Glowing arches changing color in tempo
Colored fountains dancing to the beat
Entire buildings lit so brightly that they can be seen from space
And so much more.

Whatever event(s) you participate in, we promise that it will transport you to a new world of light and sound™ unlike anything you’ve ever seen or experienced.

Individuals, and teams.
Participate as an individual, or gather your friends together and participate as a team of 4 or more. Teams save $5 per person.

The goods!
In addition to an incredible event with a stunning one of a kind light show, participants will receive a lot of great stuff:
Very high quality cotton-polly event shirts custom designed by the illustrious Shaun Neff. Shirts come in men’s and women’s cuts (that’s right ladies, no baggy boy shirts for you!)
LED bracelet
glow necklace
glow sunglasses


What to wear
Get decked out for this electro-run™! Every participant will be given an LED-light bracelet and a glow kit with glow necklace, glasses, and bracelet. But why stop there? Participants are encouraged to become a part of the show by lighting themselves up in whatever their imagination can conjure up. Cover yourself in LED lights, glow tubes, neon, or just stay tame and wear your regular running attire. Everyone is welcome to participate in the way that they enjoy the most.


Prizes will be given out throughout the event to the best and brightest costumes and again on Facebook after the event.

Finish Celebration
The lights and sounds will kick up a notch as you cross the finish line. Neon trees, glowing arches, lasers, glowing beach balls and other lighting effects will all dance to the music celebrating your return. Stay and dance as long as you like as DJs will mix the latest tunes from the main stage.

    It was a good experience. I am glad I got there really early and it was easier to leave then coming in. Wish there was more of an after party...I expected some dancing and more vendors. Not really what I expected. I thought it would be more of a "showy event
    " then a race. I am really not a runner, but did manage to jog the whole thing but was looking for more music and activity then was provided. Glad to be part of a growing trend.

      Hi Sarah, I'm gonna try to arrive there between 5:30 and 6pm. I will meet my team at the main entrance to the fairgrounds as we are already paired up into carpools. You guys are welcome to join us (and anyone else reading this). We have runners of all levels, from the ones that have been training to the ones that are doing this just for fun and to dress up. E-mail me if you're interested in meeting up with us or my cel is [masked]

    Rae and anyone else reading this, I have a team if 11. We're going out to celebrate / drink after the race. Let me know if you guys want to meet up with my crew. Our team name is Electric Boogaloo 69. We are runners of all levels so we will have someone for everyone's pace. I wish I would of seen this event earlier. But if you're looking for a team feel free to join our team too.

      What time are you guys meeting? I'm telling my team 6pm with the expectation that some of them will be late due to traffic.

      January 30, 2013

    • renee

      For anyone meeting up at Starbucks beforehand I would say 5:30. If people are meeting at the Fairgrounds 6 sounds good. I like to be early so I don't have to stress.

    For those of you that don't have a team or haven't registered, there is an opening on my team. One team member cannot make it and is willing to transfer her registration. The cost to you would be $40 (if you try to register today as an individual the fee is $60). Contact me if you're interested or if you know anyone that wants to sign up.
