You don’t glow… (CCS Glow Run) (4/21/23)

“Those are speed holes. They make the car go faster.” – The Simpsons

For context, the mobsters are shooting at Homer, who they think is Krusty. IMO what it really boils down to is ‘don’t piss on my leg and tell me it’s raining’.

When I found this race, it was billed as a Glow Run. Knowing that it was a charity event, I didn’t expect all of the bells and whistles that I’ve seen from prior commercial Glow Runs (i.e. GloRun). BUT, I did expect there to be reasonable lighting along the course.

Unfortunately, that was not the case. For almost the entire course, the primary lighting was the light poles that you see in parking lots. There were a few places that had lighting elements on generators. This also meant that there were chunks of the course that were completely dark.

While the last 1/4 mile or so was well lit, I just did not feel safe at times. I honestly felt safer during the run in nowhere, TX in the dark on the side of a 2 lane road with cars coming towards us at times.

I’m going to just leave it as I cannot recommend doing this race. I appreciate them refunding the entry fee given these issues.

Thank you to John for guiding me and keeping me safe!
