Saturday Video: Run The Night 5K Electric Glow Run, St. Thomas

Uncommon travel is many things, but above it’s active. Hiking, sailing, surfing, canyoning, kiteboarding, snorkeling, diving – if it gets us up, moving, and actively in-tune with the people and places that make the Caribbean so special, then you’ll often find us doing it.

If these active pursuits are competitive, have a built-in party component, and benefit a local charity, even better!

It’s no wonder, then, that we’re so excited about the Run The Night 5K Electric Glow Run in St. Thomas.

Run The Night 5K Electric Glow Run in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands

Does this look like a great time, or what?!

One of a series of fun and sporty experiences organized by Active Island Tours & Events, the Run The Night 5K was held for the first time just last year. Around 400 runners participate (and party!) for a good cause, according to Active Island assistant event and tour coordinator Elizabeth Stelzenmuller…

Active Island incorporates a charity component into every event that we have. For this particular run, the Family Resource Center was our charity of choice. We have a silent auction and raffle at the after party that is open to everyone. 100% of these proceeds go to the Family Resource Center.

The Run The Night 5K is held twice each year, once in April with another race slated for the fall.
