Neon run

Finley River Night Light 5k

Where: Ozark Community Center, 1530 W Jackson St, Ozark, MO

When: Saturday, June 27th from 8:30 - 11:30 PM

The Night Light 5k is a mix between a color run and a neon run, it can't get any better than that!

The First Annual Finley River Night Light 5k is going to be an absolute BLAST! The 5k will be marked along the way with Neon LED Balloons and neon glow tape so there is no way to lose your way! There will be black lights to LIGHT YOU UP, volunteers throughout the race with glow powder to cover you head to toe, and music bumping to make this run party even more fun! Before and after the music will shake you up all through the night. The end of the race will be just as much fun as the run, complete with glowing refreshments, music, lights, and a cool neon picture spot. WE CAN'T WAIT.
