The annual Griz Glow 5k Fun Run on Saturday kicks off at 8:15 p.m. with a glow in the dark theme!Participants are encouraged to dress as brightly as possible in neon and glow in the dark colors, while Campus Recreation also provides glow sticks and glow zones on the course. Bobby Ayers with Campus Rec said to register, visit the Race Montana website or at the Fitness and Recreation Center on campus.
"For sign ups, you cant go to RaceMontana.com, as well as go to the University website, or you can go down to our Rec Center as well and sign up," Ayers said. "The race is going to be at 8:15 p.m., this Saturday, March 22, and you can also sign up the day of."
Ayers said all participants receive glow sticks, music provided by Aaron Traylor with KGVO's sister station 107.5 ZooFM, and glow zones on the course. Participants can also expect door prizes, post-race refreshments, and a fun glow-theme giveaway.
"It's going to be glow in the dark," Ayers said. "We got glow zones set up throughout the races. A lot of fraternities and sororities have been nice enough to donate their time and their efforts to sponsor these glow zones as well as our intramural department at the Rec Center. Along the way, there's going to be lighted paths, LED lights throughout, and a lot of different areas where we're going to try to light up the golf course pretty well."
Ayers says all proceeds will go towards scholarship funds for summer youth rec camps at the University of Montana Campus Recreation Youth Camps.
The race will be held at the University of Montana Golf Course on 515 South Ave. East in Missoula. The route can be found here.
