The YMCA Glow Run has evolved from the Hastings River Run. This is our 5th year kicking off the annual Rivertown Days Festival as the Glow Run. We offer this race as the sun is going down on the Thursday before the 3rd weekend in July. Complete with a 1 mile Family Fun Run, a professionally timed 4 mile Glow Run and 10K Nick Clare Memorial Race, additionally there are many activities for kids and families to participate in. These activities include: arts & crafts, GA-GA Pit, obstacle course, glow in the dark face paint, music, a photo booth and ice cream from Schoolhouse Scoop! New this year – we are going to add some local food trucks as well as some extra fun activities! More information to come.
