The Electric Run is Coming Soon to Melbourne!

We donned our bedroom best for Cupid's Undie Run, slathered ourselves in neon paint for Neon Run and ruined our white tees at Colour Run.

Now, my fun-run loving friends, it's time to gather your finest glow-in-the-dark gear, because Electric Run is coming to Flemington Racecourse on Saturday 12th April! 

Electric Run is essentially a fun-run and rave rolled into one. Runners follow a 5K course pulsing with music and light installations. The route will take you through different immersive 'lands' of light and sound, featuring everything from glowing lakes and psychedelic cacti to glowing neon trees and a rainbow of lasers…trippy! Lights and music are custom-mixed to match the party mood of each 'land', so there'll never be a second of boredom in this electric wonderland!  

Whether you're a runner, walker or party shuffler, pick your pace and boogie your way through the course. It'll all kick up a notch when you cross the finish line, with an epic after party featuring neon trees, lasers and glowing beach balls pulsing to DJ-spun beats.

Folks, this is the night to leave anything dull at home. Wear your brightest, boldest, most colourful outfits – if it blinks, sparkles, or glows in the dark, you'll fit right in!

Sign up here and you'll snag an Electric Run tee, LED bracelet, glow necklace and glow-in-the-dark sunnies. Signing up in teams of four or more will save you $5 per person, so gather your gang and neon-up together!

Electric Runners will have the chance to upgrade their kicks whilst doing their bit for charity. Just bring along your current sneakers to trade in for a brand spanking new pair of Skechers (GOrun, GOwalk, GObionic or kids Twinkle Toes) at 20% off! Bring them in when you pick up your pack Thursday, Friday or on the night, and Skechers will donate (in good nick) sneakers traded in to Salvos Stores.  

So what are you waiting for? Ready, set, GLOW!
