Route information
Runners at Glow in the Park Kent will take on this 2.5k circuit twice, ensuring double the glow in the dark fun, to complete a full 5k. The course will be fully marked and marshalled to ensure you never go off course, although the glow zones will be easy to spot against the nighttime backdrop.
There are 6 epic Glow Zones, with each offering a unique experience where lighting, special effects, and music have been installed.
Entrants can run, walk, jog, hop, and skip their way around the Kent Showground course, all the while sporting a head-torch and coloured headband to see where you're going!
The whole course will be run along paths, tracks, and some grass areas.
