Please join us for the 2nd Annual Genoa Middle School Glow Run/Walk on Friday, March 6, 2020. Run or walk with us to benefit the Genoa Middle School PTSA!

The kids run (once around the track) will start after sunset at 6:45 PM and the 5K and 1-mile run/walk will both start at 7:00 PM.  The race will begin and end on the track at the back of Genoa Middle School in Westerville, OH. Please view the 5K route map below. It is an out-and-back course that begins on the track at Genoa Middle School, goes past Fouse Elementary, to the Genoa/Ohio-to-Erie trail, and then back to the glowing finish line where a DJ will be playing top hits. The 1-mile course is the first 1/2 mile of the 5K course and back to finish on the track. The courses stay off main roads for safety purposes. 

Race registration includes a glow-in-the-dark t-shirt (while supplies last), two glow sticks, a swag bag, a “glowing” finish line (bigger and brighter than last year), and medals for the top 10 5K male and female finishers. The winning male and female in the following age groups will also receive an additional prize:

13U – World Largest Gummy Bear
14-18 Years Old – World’s Largest Gummy Bear
19+ – $50 Gift Card to Columbus Running Company

The 5K will be chip-timed and the 1-Mile run/walk is only for fun and NOT chip-timed. For safety purposes, at least one glow item must be worn by all participants. We also highly encourage you to dress as “bright” as possible or in clothing and makeup that will reflect black light to make it more FUN!

Concessions will be available including hot chocolate!
