Get up and GLOW for this super hero fun run

Join us on Friday, September 7, 2018 for a fun run through the park - at night! But don't worry about it being dark, because YOU will be glowing as you get covered in UV glow powder. But there's more - you'll get to represent one of the top DC Super Heroes as you run, walk, or even dance through the park. We'll have your choice of a WONDER WOMAN, SUPERMAN, BATMAN or THE JOKER cape for every runner - so pick your squad! Then, spend time after the run riding some of our world-class coasters for the best post-run cool down.
