Nite Glo 5K

5KHeader2014 Get out the glow sticks and neon!  Once again, we will light up the night on Friday, August 22 with the Toledo Pride Nite Glo 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run, Walk and Roll.  In 2013, over 500 people joined us on the University of Toledo campus for an evening run complete with an illuminated course, pre-race warm-up, swag bags from our sponsors, black light finish line, live entertainment after the race and so much more!

The race will be officially timed by the Toledo Road Runners using chip technology. The Toledo Pride Nite Glo 5K course will start and end in Centennial Mall between the Student Union and University Bell Tower. The remainder of the course will take you through the University of Toledo Campus, which is ranked in the Top 20 most beautifully landscaped campuses in the country. The course is mostly flat except for one hill that is located just past the mile mark. The race will start at 8:30pm followed by the 1 mile fun walk, roll or run.
