Description

Come out and GLOW wild for a cause in March 2019! Coming on the heels of the first glow-in-the-dark run in Victoria, the second Run The Night 5k is scheduled to be held in scenic downtown Victoria, TX. The festivities will kick off with entertainment and packet pickup at De Leon Plaza before the run, when darkness falls and our runners get GLOWING, collecting necklaces at checkpoints throughout the run. The event ends with an unforgettable afterparty! 

The race course is 5K/3.1M and is perfect for beginners and experienced runners alike! The run is not timed, so feel free to take it at your own pace!

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 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.
