Because of this awesome feature, we ask that you register as a team before July 22nd, 2019. To make the registration easy, elect a captain to create the group online so others can follow in their footsteps. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us through the website and we'll get back to you as soon as we can! Can't wait to see all of you TEAM UP! THE TEAM OPTION IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR 2019 

Start/Finish: Our dusk run starts in front of A.I.Root Middle School then continues through paths of the Greenwood Park as well as the near by neighborhood. With over hanging trees and wooded paths, lighted balloons bring a new sense of wonder to this race. This year we hope to incorporate decorated houses that are on route. We pride ourselves on our course being decorated with glow sticks, LED balloons and colorful lights to bring a whole new expeirence to our runners. Glow with the Flow is a fun event for all and gives back to families dealing with cancer in our community.

This course is completley on pavement with slight inclines and declines. Volunteers will be located on different parts of the course to help guide you as you run or walk.  We do light our course but with this being a dusk run, we suggest participants to bring their own flashlights to help light our course on top of our lights/decorations we've provided.
