Foam Glow 5K is Coming to Cleveland Next Month


  • Foam Glow, Facebook
We've been easing our way back into shape this summer and now have another reason to hit the pavement: Foam Glow 5K, an electronic dance party/ foam fest / social fun run, that's slated to take place at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds on July 25.

For the uninitiated, here's how it works: Runners or walkers of all ages can sign up right here and on race day will hurdle themselves through three miles of foam glow zones where they'll be blasted with foamy glow-in-the-dark dye as electronic dance music pumps through the course. At the finish line, the whole thing turns into a giant dance party with - you got it - more foam.

The event is billed as "the best night of [your] life," which sets the bar pretty high, if you ask us. Nevertheless, last year's Electric Run was pretty fun and this event looks comparable. It's also the same day as Scene Ale Fest, so that could make things even more interesting.

All the important details can be found here (time, price, location, etc.). Check out this "official" event video to get an idea of what you'd be in for.
