New glow in the dark race to engage families

Glow sticks will array costumed runners at the first annual Glow in the Dark Fun Run in Terrace October 17.

Terrace's Transcend Fitness women's gym is organizing a new glow in the dark race Oct. 17.

Glow sticks will array costumed runners at the first annual Glow in the Dark Fun Run October 17.

“There isn’t a lot of fun races offered in Terrace that the community as a whole can participate in,” said organizer Kristine Ewald.

With glow sticks and Halloween costumes, they hope to draw together people who do not normally run together.

As of last Wednesday, 136 singles and 27 families were registered for the event.

It is a “way to get the community active,” said Ewald.

Ewald is the co-owner of Transcend Fitness, a new women’s-only gym, that is organizing the race.

The fun run will start at the track at Skeena Middle School.

It will kick off with a one kilometre race around the track at 7 p.m., which is open for all ages, but focused on children and families. Strollers are welcome.

A five kilometre race will start at 7:30 p.m. and will lead people around the neighbourhood, decked out in glow gear and guided by volunteers.

More about family and participation, prizes will be given for the best individual costume and best group costume.

To register or for more information find “Glow in the Dark Fun Run” on Facebook or email Last minute registration opens at 6 p.m.
