Cool Events Weekend Recap (5/11)

May 15th, 2019

Four events, three cities, and 55,500 participants

PHOENIX, May 15, 2019 — Cool Events hosted more than 55,500 participants on Saturday May 11th at Terrain Race, Bubble Run, Blacklight Run, and Foam Glow 5K.

“With rain early Saturday morning in Fort Worth, we were afraid we would have to reschedule our makeup date for Terrain Race,” said Cool Events CEO, Bill Spata. “The skies cleared for the day but not after making for a mud run that most will never forget.”

Terrain Race, the company’s 5K obstacle course race, saw nearly 12,000 participants in Fort Worth, TX at the Texas Motor Speedway. This was the makeup date for Terrain Race’s rained-out date last month. The next Terrain Race will take place in Lake Erie, PA on Saturday May 18th, as well as in Austin, TX on Saturday May 18th and Sunday May 19th. With the addition of Pittsburgh, PA, Terrain Race has 39 additional dates at this year.

Blacklight Run also took place at the Texas Motor Speedway. This night-time 5K featured 18,500 participants.  The next Blacklight Run will take place in Anaheim, CA on Saturday June 1st. Blacklight Run has 18 additional dates this year.

Foam Glow 5K took place at Fairplex in Pomona, CA.  One of Cool Events’ signature events, this night-time 5K hosted over 13,000 participants. The next Foam Glow 5K will take place in San Jose, CA on Friday May 17th.  Foam Glow has 22 additional dates this year.

Bubble Run took place in Richmond, VA on Saturday May 11th.  The day-time fun run featured just over 12,000 participants. The next Bubble Run will take place in Madison, WI on Saturday May 18th, as well as in San Jose, CA on Saturday May 18th. Bubble Run has 22 additional dates this year.
