Run to Rave!

  • Cal Expo Fairgrounds (map)

Hi all,

Based on the overwhelming response thus far to this event, Amazon decided what the hell: another coupon deal!  That's right, you can get half off and do this fun event for just $29 flat! The deal runs through Saturday, June 8th! Get your ticket and sign up!



We will meet at the right side Main Entrance of Cal Expo @ 8:00PM



So much more than a glow in the dark 5k Run, it’s a party from start to finish. As you begin your "Run To Rave 5k" experience, music will lead the way while your eyes soak in one beautiful visual after another. Cross the finish line into a main stage nocturnal dance festival with electrifying light spectacles all in celebration of your health and happiness.

Every event is unique and will have 6 to 10 special "zones" that are custom designed around the outstanding features of each venue.



  • Music pumping along most of course
  • Glowing arches
  • Colored water fountains
  • Tunnels of light with various add-on effects
  • Colored bubbles and balloon zones
  • Neon colored landscapes and trees that change colors as you pass
  • Blacklight zones that pop your colors and make for great photo ops
  • Buildings used as projection screens
  • Lakes, ponds and creeks with beautiful colors cast about
  • Live talent such as dancers, performing artists – think aerialists or mimes
