Electric Run FAQ
What do I get with my registration fee?
Each event features a one-of-a-kind light show designed by the the nations most talented lighting designers and artists. In addition to the light show, participants will receive a 2015 limited edition tee with glowing logo, LED bracelet, and UV glow body pen!
How much of the course has lights and music?
There will be 5-7 lands each with a different mood. Some will be very up beat others will be more etherial. In between these worlds will be areas of relative silence and no lighting elements. These “dark” areas will give the senses and chance to reset before entering the next Land. There will be enough light in these “dark” areas to make it safe to run.
Is Electric Run a rave?
The Electric Run™ will feature many of the same light elements that could be found at a rave but the focus of an electric run is on health and celebration. We believe everyone, no matter their age, should be able to experience lights and music in an environment that is healthy and happy. There is no tolerance for drugs at the event.
Is this a timed event?
Nope. This is not a “race” this is an experience. Enjoy yourself and take in the sites and sounds of the course. If you like one lighting zone or a song that is playing feel free to hang out and dance for a bit.
How do you feel about walkers?
Walkers are very welcome! We can’t blame you for wanting to take in the scenery of the various worlds, we just ask that if you choose to walk, stay to the right so runners can pass safely to your left!
Should I bring my own LED and Glow stuff or do you provide it?
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!
Does this race benefit a charity?
An official charity partner will be selected in each city and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the charity.
Are there refunds?
Unfortunately, we cannot issue refunds. The logistics of setting up and planning the event make it impossible. Just make sure you are good to go before signing up. If for some reason you can’t make it to race day, at least come to the check in, you can still come to the check in to pick up your Electric Run gear, or see below on how to transfer your registration!
If I can’t make it to packet pickup can someone else pick up my packet for me?
Yep! You just have to send them with a copy of your confirmation email (printed or electronic) with your unique barcode to pick up your goods!
How do I transfer my registration to another person?
Go to myevents.active.com and login to your account. Choose the option “Transfer registration to another athlete” and then enter the email address of the person you are transferring it to. OR click on the link in your registration confirmation email that says “transfer to someone else” and it will prompt you to put the email address in for the person you are transferring it to. Once they claim their registration, it will refund your payment (minus the active.com processing fee) and ask the person receiving the transfer to pay the CURRENT price of the registration. Transferring will be available up until a week before the race.
Can I transfer my registration from one city to another city?
Unfortunately we don’t have a way of transferring your registration from one city to another. But what you can do is transfer your registration to another runner (see instructions above). Then you can register for the city you WANT to run in!
Where can I find cool glow stuff to wear?
There are a lot of great websites out there with fun accessories. Check out ElectricWear.com for some great Electric Run apparel and fun glow items to add to your costume. Get creative!
Can kids participate?
Yes! This is an all ages event. In fact, kids 5 and under run for free and don’t need to register!
Can I push a stroller?
Yes! Actually… you know what you should do? Put some rad lights on the wheels and handle bars and make that thing look amazing!! Your kids will love the show!
Can dogs participate?
