2023 Night Glow 5K
It is not just a 5k race, it is an experience: What makes the original Night Glow 5k so unique - it could be the 1,256 luminaries that light the course, the booming fireworks to start the race, the the 300 foot arch way of lights, the rowdy spectators in the neighborhood streets cheering you on, the amazing race shirts, the glow necklaces each runner receives at registration, the fact that you finish inside the Jackson Park surrounded by the Jackson Festival, or maybe it is you and friends having a blast and making memories.  The event will close at packet pick up on the 22nd.
