Friday, October 10th (Scary Glow) AND Saturday, October 11th (Glow)
2014 is the year of the 2nd Annual Monster Glow Dash 5K! The 1st Annual MGD 2013 sold out last year with 2300 registered participants in one night, and this year promises to be bigger, better, and brighter! Because one night wasn’t insane enough for Southern Maryland, we’re hosting two nights this year to give our participants their 2014 glow fix. Our Friday night glow run will feature some of the areas creepiest and scariest creatures guaranteed to haunt our runners throughout the course. For families and our glow addicts, we’ll be hosting a strictly glo run course Saturday night after the monsters and creatures have moved on. And the party doesn’t stop there – our DJ will be playing the hottest mixes at our MGD After Party again this year, complete with dancing, food, beverages, and more! We are adding color stations to both Friday and Saturday night, but don’t worry if UV powder is not your thing, it’s optional!This race is guaranteed to be the hottest 5K experience in the region! ALL PROCEEDS GO TO BENEFIT HEROES FOR THE HOMELAND
