      Foam Glow is a non-competitive running event that is held annually in multiple locations around the nation. Participants gather at the starting line near dusk, wearing white T-shirts. After warm-up dancing and a few fun festivities, they start running or walking the course of approximately 3 miles. The catch is that before and during the run, they are sprayed with non-toxic sudsy material that glows in bright colors under black light. And there just happens to be plenty of black light on hand to make this a fun, memorable, photogenic occasion. This specific edition of the event is held in August at the fairgrounds in the Boston suburb of Brockton.

      If you go:
      Parking available on site for a fee, or you may be able to park in the shopping center across the street. Participants must register and pay a fee in advance. Proceeds go to benefit local charities, and Foam Glow is particularly devoted to funding children's cancer research. Foam Glow, headquartered in Phoenix, is affiliated with Blacklight Run.
