Get your GLOW on! The South Texas Run The Night 5k is set in scenic downtown Victoria, TX. The course begins at historic De Leon Plaza, winds through the downtown district, and finishes up back at the Plaza with an afterparty featuring No Chance Band.

Runners will light up the night by collecting glow necklaces at checkpoints throughout the run. Even more fun? Every runner who collects all three necklaces will receive a free pint of draft beer from Moonshine Drinkery, located just blocks away from the finish line.

The race course is 5K/3.1M and is perfect for beginners and experienced runners alike! The run is not timed, but trophies for first, second, and third place will be handed out at the afterparty.

This run benefits The Riding Therapy Center of Victoria and the Smiles For Life Foundation. The Riding Therapy Center is the only PATH Intl Premier Accredited Center within 125 miles. The RTC serves individuals with disabilities or special needs with equine therapeutic riding services. Established for nearly 30 years, the RTC’s work has helped clients achieve improvements in balance, coordination, motor skills, cognitive planning and self-esteem, increasing their independence in and outside of the arena.

The Smiles For Life Foundation supports local and national children's charities across the US; Each year, the team at Goliad Dental Care donates all profits received from whitening procedures during the months of March through June to the Smiles for Life Foundation in support of foundation's charity work.
