CONTRIBUTED CONTENT — St. George Races and the St. George Firefighters Association have created what might be the coolest 5-kilometer race this summer — the Moonlight 5K — on June 4 at 9 p.m. This year’s event will begin and end near the clubhouse at the new Desert Color development, 820 W. Akoya Pearl, St. George.
Throughout the course, the St. George Firefighters will spray runners with water. After the race, registered participants can take part in a glow-in-the-dark pool party from 10 p.m. to midnight.
“The Moonlight 5K is the perfect way to begin the summer,” said Jenni Towner, a race participant from previous years. “I felt like I was running through a field of neon glow stick fireflies. It was magical — like camping under the stars.”
Race sign-ups continue online through June 2. A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit the Utah Burn Center and the St. George Firefighters Association.
