Neon Night Glow Run

The 2018 Neon Night Glow Run was a huge success and we invite you to come glow with us in Summer 2020!



Let your light shine at the 5th annual NWFCU Foundation Neon Night Glow Run in Herndon, VA!

For the last four years, 250 participants took to the course at this family-friendly 5K Glow Run and 1-Mile Fun Run. Imagine yourself twinkling and sparkling your way around paved roads, the W&OD Trail, and the Runnymede Park Trail, then crossing the finish line amid smoke and lasers.

Each entrant receives a glow-in-the-dark T-shirt, a glow necklace, an awesome swag bag filled with goodies, and access to pre- and post-race music and entertainment. We hand out special prizes for glow runners who are the brightest, most flashy, and most reflective, so plan your outfit accordingly!  The run is untimed, so if you want to take your time and enjoy the trails, you won’t have the pressure of a clock to beat.

The Neon Night Glow Run benefits the NWFCU Foundation's partnership with Inova Children's Hospital and its annual Night of Magic. The Night of Magic is our way of creating a memorable evening so the children and their families can forget about their medical concerns, if only for a few hours. These very special guests often miss out on fun social events like field trips, sporting events, school dances, and sometimes even their proms, which is why our Night of Magic is a very special evening that has positive, long-lasting effects on the patients as well as their families.
