Come on out and glow in the dark! Georgetown’s first-ever after dark 5K—the Glo-n-Go Fun Run–will be held on Saturday, August 6th, at 8:00 PM. Everyone is welcome: runners, walkers, people with dogs, and families with strollers. The Glo-n-Go 5K Fun Run is sponsored by our board, our PTO, and MamaLights.com.
The Glo-n-Go Fun Run will begin and end in front of our school. The circuit will take participants through beautiful downtown Georgetown and around East Bay. The cost is $25 through July 22 for everyone older than 7, then goes up to $30. Kids seven and under participate for free, but still must register. All paying participants will receive T-shirts and reusable LED slap-on wrist bands from MamaLights. There will be prizes in both traditional and fun categories. MamaLights will also be on hand with a unique selection of glow-in-the-dark merchandise. And yes, there will be snacks for hungry Kingfishers as well!
Registration can be done through the school’s website (thegeorgetownschool.org) or by dropping by the school Monday through Thursday 8:30-1:00. Forms are also available at Green Bean Consignment on Front Street.
The Glo-n-Go 5K Fun Run offers a unique opportunity for families and athletes to enjoy being active after dark under the live oaks and along the marshes of Georgetown–with the added fun of glow-in-the-dark accessories. Parts of the circuit will be lit with street reflectors and downtown residents are encouraged to turn on their porch lights, and come out and cheer. “We just want to get everyone out and have a great time together,” said race organizer Matt Wesolowski. “Kids will love seeing all the decorated people, dogs, and strollers!”
