Blacklight 5k Run

27/09/2015

On Saturday 26th September 5 DRC members; Christina and Kim Adamson, Susan Bunyan, Saty Burns and Gemma Leadbetter travelled to Edinburgh to take part in the Blacklight 5k run which was held at the Highland Show Ground.

Blacklight run is designed to be a non-competitive fun event suitable for the whole family. In contrast to most other running events the focus of time and pace based goals is substituted with the necessity to ensure participants get covered from head to foot with glow powder and have multiple opportunities for photos under UV light and dancing along the way. The event started at 7.15 to ensure that darkness was approaching and the course was teaming with glowing hues. The sheer numbers of people taking part (approximately 4000) and the darkness made it quite difficult to run between glow stations but the ladies tried their best to do so without compromising on the en-route fun. The event was not officially timed, however one of the ladies did start her Garmin (of course she did!) to record a total distance of 2.85 miles in an elapsed time of 33 minutes. Once the course was completed it was time for the after party with a DJ blasting out the dance tracks, more glow powder and a burger van.  All in all a thoroughly enjoyable event.
