Come have fun with us in a different world! Along the 5K route, music will pump and lights will dance, creating an electric wonderland that will keep you energized and moving to the beat. You’ll run, walk, and dance through distinct lands with lights and music custom-mixed to match the mood of the lighting elements.

What to Wear
We invite you to bring your creativity, smile, laugh, and leave dull at home. It is the collective light and creativity of the thousands of participants that brings this event to life! You are coming to have fun and experience something magical and different. Look the part! If it is bright-colored, blinks, shines, glows, or looks like something from another planet, it’s perfect! Put it on and come celebrate with us!

Our Worlds

Our Electric Run events are as unique as each city. Since no two venues or communities are the same, every race experience is tailored to the location and crowd hosting us that night. With your city as a canvas, we use our palette of bright lights to paint the night and create a vibrant atmosphere full of color, sound and energy. Depending on where you attend an Electric Run event, you will witness between five and seven of the following themed Course Lands:

  • Electro Rainforest
  • Rainbow Road
  • Sweet Tooth Acres
  • Under the Sea
  • Rockstar Powerhouse
  • Electric Avenue
  • Delta Station

Individuals and Teams
Participate as an individual, or gather your friends together and participate as a team of 4 or more! Register as a Team and save! (lower team price does not apply to promotional pricing).

The Goods
In addition to an incredible event with a stunning one-of-a-kind light show, participants will receive these high quality items:

  • High quality cotton-polly event shirts custom designed by NEFF.
  • LED bracelet
  • Glow sunglasses

Finish Celebration
The lights and sounds will kick up a notch as you cross the finish line. Neon trees, glowing arches, lasers, glowing beach balls and other lighting effects will all dance to the music celebrating your return. Stay and dance as DJs mix the latest tunes from the main stage.

All Ages
We are passionate about creating an experience that is fun, energizing, and beautiful. And we believe everyone, no matter their age, should be able to experience incredible lights and music in an environment that is healthy and happy. Illegal drugs are not tolerated at Electric Run.

Alcohol is served to those 21+ at most Electric Run Finish Celebrations, but we ask that you drink responsibly. We want to keep the atmosphere fun and healthy.

  15. Leisa June 24, 2014 at 3:09 pm #

    My coworker and I have recently talked about training for a 5K run. This fun event would be just the CHARGE we need to get our butts going. She would be THRILLED if we could participate at no charge. We work full-time but the registration fee is outside our budgets. She’ll be celebrating 6 years free of drugs & alcohol in late July. Running this 5K will be a major CELEBRATION of FULLY LIVING the GOOD LIFE!

    I’ll don my neon and glow
    Like an effervescent rainbow

    Lively footsteps resonating
    Through the streets of Portland

    Neon, volt, yellow
    The illuminated trail
    Dancing in the background

    Five or seven in the land of light
    Red rock cliffs

    United by creativity, craft, sass with that shake
    I’d really rather not miss

  28. Linda June 26, 2014 at 3:48 pm #

  49. Katherine July 3, 2014 at 10:46 am #

    Dancing in the moonlight….Wow, the pic looks incredible. This would be definitely be a memorable experience to take to our twilight years. Have some glow in the dark hair color and makeup from Halloween that would add to the glow. Added bonus that we have two birthdays in July to celebrate.

  50. april July 3, 2014 at 12:53 pm #

    I would really like to run this because I would get to experience something completely different and have so much fun at the same time! It would definitely bring my brother and i closer if we did this, and there’s no way i could ever convince my parents to spend that much on tickets. Thanks anyway :)
