the GLOW Run for Youth


Glow Run 2023

We had so much fun at our first Glow Run. Perhaps we can see you next year!

the GLOW Run For Youth

 The Run for Youth is a family fun run. Participants run/walk/jog for 40 minutes around the track at GSHS.  Before the race starts, you can get your face painted or help a friend with their glow sticks while we pass out door prizes and enjoy a DJ.  Whether you want to stroll with a friend, pose under the black light,  or actually run for 40 minutes, there is room for you at the Run for Youth.  Prizes will be awarded after the run.

Individuals may sign up on race day for a suggested donation of $40.

This FUNdraiser for Northwestern Colorado Youth for Christ is designed to cooperatively raise funds for local youth group events and for local Christian Schools.  Participants will run/walk/boogie for 40 minutes, but before that they will have asked friends, relatives, or anyone else for sponsors.  Sponsors can choose to donate funds on our website (don’t forget to credit your runner in the “Team Member” field).
Date:   May 6, 2023
Time:  7pm – 9:30pm
Place:  Track @ Glenwood Springs High School



What kind of race is this?
The fun kind! The race will go for 40 minutes around the track of Glenwood Springs High school.  We don’t care if you walk, run, dance, or skip your way through.
