Race Day Questions

Since so much of our event is beyond the running we have just one price for everyone (in other words, you are not required to run to enjoy our event!). We don’t have a separate rate for spectators since even spectators get in on the action! Everyone at the event needs to be a paid participant with a signed waiver.

We’ll be using positive thoughts to keep bad weather away, but if it happens just know we’ll be hosting the event – rain or shine, safety first of course, but rain or shine!

We love animals! However, they aren’t allowed at our event, you’ll just have to show them your pictures. Except of course registered service animals are always welcome.

Absolutely! You can totally deck yourself out in glow gear – but make sure you stop by our Night Nation Store, we probably have exactly what you need to complete your outfit.

Our policy is nothing bigger than a cinch sack is permitted at the event (NO backpacks, duffel bags, etc.). You will pass through a security checkpoint / bag check to enter – so save yourself time and leave anything big in the car!

The parking fees are set by each venue, so this will vary for each Night Nation event. Most venues will charge around $10 for parking and accept cash only. We encourage you to carpool or take public transit when it is available.

Event & Course Information

We welcome everyone at our event – whether you are into running or just want to be part of the experience. If you know how to have a great time and want to mix fun & fitness (of any level) then yes, this is the event for you.

Nope! You’ll see we have runners, walkers, skippers and dancers – everyone enjoys the course in their own way.

We do not hand out finisher medals at our events. The Night Nation is more about the entertainment and experience! Since so much of our event is beyond the running, we don’t give out medals. But, you will leave with the experience of a lifetime!

All you have to do is listen to our MC, he’ll let you know when it’s time to head to the startline – once he says “go” you’ll move with your friends (old and new) to the startline – whomever you are standing with, is who you are running with! There are no assigned groups. Waves are released every two minutes until all participants are on course!

You will find multiple party zones with live DJ’s, Dancers, Lightshows, Selfie-Stations and Glow Gear giveaways! We encourage you to dance and party as long as you like at each course stage. If you’re looking to set your 5k personal record – this might not be the run for you! Be prepared for multiple terrains – our course may go on dirt, grass, cement, asphalt and more! The entire race will take place on the grounds of the venue.

After you cross the finish line the real party begins! On the main stage multiple DJ’s will bring the house down. Dance the night away as lights, fog, cryo, confetti guns and giveaways rain down on you! Yes, there will be food and alcohol for sale in the festival area. Take a minute and watch the videos on our website – they have been filmed at past events and will give you an accurate feel for the experience!

Night Nation Run is proud to have Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) as the official Night Nation charity. Grab your gear and join the Night Nation’s movement to support SU2C and their ground breaking initiative to accelerate cancer research by purchasing a Co-Branded NNR/SU2C item – available at our Night Nation Store! #NightNationStandsUp

Respect above all else. We are YES people, we’ll do what we can to ensure a great night as long as you do the same and treat all our: entertainers, participants, venue, staff, volunteers and new friends with respect. If you are legally allowed you may consume alcohol purchased at our event, if you choose to do so to excess, you will be asked to leave. On that note, we are a drug free zone – we use a zero tolerance approach – no questions, no arguments, you will be escorted out.
