Participation Art / What to wear 
The Electric Run is a show; the course is the set and the participants are the cast! Come let your light shine and your creative juices flow. Add your own creative spark by dressing up in other-worldy costumes that glow, shine, blink, and dazzle. Show us all what you’ve got! 

Lighting elements 
Each course will have 5-10 distinct lighting experiences which will include different artistic elements and different moods. Some will be very energetic others will be more etherial. Each event is unique. 

Depending on the event you participate in you may experience many of the following:

  • Glowing neon trees changing colors to match the music
  • Tunnels with dancing patterns and figures on the walls, ceilings, and floors
  • Lakes and rivers glowing in other-worldly hues
  • Tunnels of light created by a rainbow of lasers
  • Glowing arches and columns
  • Neon saguaro cactus
  • Red rock cliffs glowing in psychedelic colors and patterns
  • Glowing arches changing color in tempo
  • Colored fountains dancing to the beat
  • Entire buildings lit so brightly that they can be seen from space
  • And so much more.

Whatever event(s) you participate in, we promise that it will transport you to a new world of light and sound unlike anything you’ve ever seen or experienced.
