What is it?

The NEON NITE 5K is a nighttime run, walk & stroller roll for participants of all ages, abilities and levels.

We are about having a great nighttime experience without focusing on how fast you can run, walk or stroll a 5K.

This unique experience caters to the serious, average, beginning runner, walker and stroller.

It's all about the GLOW! Come to the race with or without glow gear. Doesn't matter, because your race entry includes TONS of glow swag.

Wanna GLOW but not run?: Just because the runners take off for awhile doesn't mean the party stops! During the 5K try GLOW ZUMBA or rock out at the GLOW PARTY during the race. There's something for everyone!
Come to the pre-5K GLOW PARTY for face painting, GLOW ZUMBA and an all-around great time!

Come for the 5K fun, but stay for the AFTER-GLOW PARTY. An immersion of GLOW and club lighting with a DJ spinning the best hits.

Approximately 3.1 miles of dim and sparsely lit gently rolling hills through Cardinal Club Estates in Simpsonville, Kentucky to ensure you GLOW to the fullest. Course begins and finishes at the Simpsonville Gym where we'll let the GLOWING commence with a pre and post run GLOW DANCE PARTY! Free water stops throughout the course.

This family classic is adapted from the Broadway musical, which was based on the comic strip Little Orphan Annie. During the Great Depression in New York City, a plucky red-haired scrapper named Annie (Aileen Quinn) is the voice of hope for her fellow orphans who live under the supervision of drunken floozy Miss Hannigan (Carol Burnett). Annie's spirit is fueled by the belief that her real parents dropped her off at the orphanage with a half of a locket, promising to return for her with the other half. One day, the dingy orphanage is visited by the sophisticated Grace Farrell (Ann Reinking), personal secretary to conservative politician Oliver Warbucks (Albert Finney). In order to improve his image, Grace brings Annie to the Warbucks estate for a weeklong visit. Annie quickly wins the hearts of servants and politicians alike, eventually even bringing her song of hope, "Tomorrow," to President Roosevelt in Washington. Warbucks and Grace even go so far as to perform a public search for Annie's parents, creating an opportunity for Miss Hannigan, Rooster (Tim Curry), and Lily (Bernadette Peters) to scam their way to the reward money.
