Here is a link to the original story on the team's website.
McCoy Stadium will play host to its first “Night Nation Run” on Saturday, September 24, a 5K Music Festival. The innovative run is a pioneer among running music festivals, which combine exercise with live music and lights. The event supports Stand Up to Cancer.
Gates open Saturday at 4:30 pm, with the first DJ performance at 6 pm, and the first wave of runners at 7 pm.
Throughout the illuminated racecourse, participants will experience on-course DJ performances, interactive light shows, selfie stations, and glow gear giveaways. After the race, which takes place at the stadium and adjacent Pariseau Field, participants can enjoy a post-party in center field with a headliner DJ to be named later, as well as celebrity guests.
“We are pleased to help play host to this innovative event that blends running with electronic dance music,” said PawSox President Dr. Charles A. Steinberg. “We salute its creators for creating a community event that supports the wonderful work being performed by our friends at Stand Up to Cancer.”
The Night Nation Run Pick-Up Party takes place the previous day, Friday, September 23, from 4-8 pm, when participants can pick up their race information and gear.
An “Early Bird” registration fee of $29 is in effect until 11:59 p.m. tonight. Thereafter, the full fee is $60. For more information, including ticket purchases, visit www.nightnationrun.com.
