It’s starting to become a tradition. The closing ceremony of light art festival GLOW with the GLOW Run. The third edition of this unique fun run will take place on the 18th of November. The run will cover the same route as GLOW. That’s 6 kilometres of running past GLOW’s works of art. Or as the organisation likes to call it: “Running in the most beautiful setting in the world”.

Light art festival GLOW will end with GLOW Run Eindhoven on the final night. Saturday night, November 18th, approximately 2.500 contenders will cover the 6 kilometre route. The setting? GLOW’s unique collection of light art. Not only the entourage is spectacular, but the participants themselves are challenged being part of the art on the route.

Fun Run

The organisation follows the trend where runners experience their sport on a whole new level. Therefore the GLOW Run classifies as a ‘fun run’ and won’t have any form of timekeeping. But all participants will receive a start number nonetheless. It’s all about the experience and the setting of the run. Starting time is 23,00 hrs. The distance of the run is 6 km and accessible for everyone. The route is unique and can’t be found anywhere in the Netherlands, or the world.


Route GLOW Run Eindhoven

The GLOW Run will start at the Forum (indoor) at the grounds of the TU/e. At the Forum there will be bands and DJ’s who’ll make sure everyone starts the run excited and warmed up. Leaving the grounds the route passes the ‘silly walk’ tunnel, underneath the railway, leading towards the centre of Eindhoven and joining the GLOW route. Exclusive GLOW Run light art will be on show during the run. Celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Catherina church, the GLOW Run will pass through the church. Participants will finish in the Beursgebouw after 6 kilometres, honouring everybody for their achievement. Followed by GLOW’s grand-finale and GLOW Run’s festive after party.
