Let's come together at the river we love!
Various points along our beloved Trinity River need your attention and help by collecting discarded debris and litter. By joining forces as a community, our river will be protected well into the future. The cleanup event is a great way for families and community groups to join together to ensure that our Trinity is at its very best. After the cleanup, stick around for family fun at the after party. at Panther Island Pavilion.
The Blacklight Run™ is none other than the brightest, most fun 5K out there. At the Blacklight Run™ we aren’t focused on how fast or how far you can run, what type of exercise you enjoy, or if you’re an avid runner. We don’t care if you’ve never run a day in your life! Instead, we welcome any and all participants looking for a glowing good time. Whether you sprint it, run it, or walk it, it doesn’t matter to us! We simply want you to enjoy it. These three miles will be the best three miles you’ve ever spent with your friends and family—we promise.
The Blacklight Run™ has been setup with very simple rules
1) Wear a white shirt (any white T-shirt will work or wear your awesome commemorative Blacklight Run™ T-Shirt given with your registration) to be worn at the start line.
2) You will finish covered in Blacklight Run™ UV Liquid Glow, that will glow in our Blacklight Zones™ and at the Blacklight Run After Party™. By the end, you will look like you fell into a Ghost Buster’s movie (minus the slime) and covered with different colored Blacklight Run™ UV Liquid Glow. This is the first of its kind at night and is quickly sweeping the nation!
