2018 Press Release


Firefly Run announces new ownership for 2018 to bring back the fun, energy, and spirit of the illuminating 5K run.

Started in 2010, Firefly Run combines elements of a 5K Race along with a night festival and after-party. Participants are first given a swag bag with their bib, race shirt, and creative LED gear worn to mimic the effect of fireflies glowing in the night.

Then families, friends, and co-workers run a 5K while decked out in their LED gear and swag. After the run, comes the celebration with lights, music, and fun to create an experience participants will not forget. In some cities, special performances, DJ’s, food trucks, and sponsors come together to add to the Firefly Run experience.

In its 8th year anniversary, Firefly Run seeks to bring its fun elements combined with a run to several cities around the U.S. In addition, Firefly Run partners and works with charity organizations to bring positive impact to the local community.

Early bird registrations open in 2017.

We’re excited to bring Firefly Run back to the cities the event has been to. In the upcoming year, we’re introducing new swag, really cool shirts, and an all around experience you won’t forget.

You don’t want to miss the most illuminating, eye dazzling 5K run. It’s an event to look forward to each year.

Starting from December, we will be hosting smaller, mini Firefly events where you get swag, an opportunity to run through one of our specially designed courses, and meet one of our coordinators. These events are smaller but packed with lights, swag, and fun. By registering for a mini Firefly event, you’ll be eligible to participate in the flagship event on April 7, 2018 at the Campus at Legacy!
