The world’s brightest 5k run is back with a vengeance and needless to say, it’s bigger and better than ever.

Taking place on Friday, February 24, Daman's ActiveLife Electric Run which has welcomed tens of thousands of party lovers, avid dancers and running enthusiasts over the years has a few new tricks up its sleeve this year. Aside from a new location Yas Gateway Park - they have introduced the “Power Hour” which is aimed at “serious” runners who want to complete the course without all the dancing and distractions.

If this is your first time attending the seriously bright event, here’s what you should know:

The race consists of nine courselands which includes the Rainbow Road, Electric Avenue and the Colour Brick Road.

It’s five kilometers but there’s no time limit meaning that if you like us and can’t go 100 meters without panting, then you’ve got all the time in the world- well not really but you have until they start to deflate the courses.

Dress to impress, meaning illuminating light, neon gear and bright colours. Just don’t forget your runner’s bib that has your participant number on it please.

There’s a party at the finish line, and, by party we mean one of the biggest and brightest after parties of the year. Let us elaborate, you’ll be given your very own electroband and PixMob LED bracelet- that was made famous during Taylor Swift's 1989 World Tour- at the start of the race. The bracelet basically flashes light according to the beat  produced by the night's many DJs which includes Virgin Radio's Myles, Scott B and LPhunk. 

Make sure you bring cash. There’s a number of stalls and refreshment stands on site and let’s be real - you’re bound to find something you may not need but want.

Once you’re done with registration all your goods will be sent to you, roughly one week before the actual race itself.

If you’re still not sold on the idea - watch the video below.

Now that you’re fully equipped and in the know, you can register here or at GO Sport stores across the UAE, at Fitness First clubs in Abu Dhabi as well as at Ibn Battuta Mall. We recommend that you sign up ASAP as there’s only a few tickets left.
