Night Nation Run Is the Only Race That’s More Like a Party

Take an average 5K, and add a dash of intrigue by setting the start at sunset. Mix in some live music along the race, add a heaping spoonful of interactive light shows, and stir it up with some party zones, DJs, and more craziness. What do you get?

A race that’s more like a wild dash from party to party for one wild night – it’s the Night Nation Run.

Run, Walk, Skip, or Dance at Running Music Festivals

This all-ages event is less of a serious race and more of a chance for some completely unique entertainment. If you’re looking for a timed race and a finisher medal, this is not the place.

Night Nation Run PittsburghHowever, if you want to have an exciting, exhilarating time racing, walking, or even skipping along a lighted course, making it to party zones with live DJs, taking a break for dancing and Selfie Stations, and finally crossing the finish line for the after party, this is the race for you.

The Details

Night Nation Run Pittsburgh will happen on July 22 at Stage AE. The gates open at 5:30 p.m., with a pre-party at 7:30 and the first wave of runners hitting the course at 8:30.

After the race, attend the Main Stage After Party for a show that will knock your socks off. There will be surprise performers, giveaways, fog machines, confetti guns, and all kinds of craziness.

Plus, the event supports a great charity, Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C). Donate $1 to receive a special race bib, buy a race t-shirt, or sign up a team to help raise money for cancer research.

Running music festivals don’t come along very often. If you plan on racing and having a blast at this fun-filled event, stay with us at Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square.
