The neon is packed away, the lights are dimmed and the glow gear has darkened, but the memories linger. Hundreds gathered at Redlands City Hall in the chill of the night, charged and ready to go. The Music pounding the beat, the lights dazzling the minds and pretty soon the DJ indicated it was time to head out onto the streets of Redlands. A mass of glowing undulating runners, walkers, strollers and revelers headed out into the darkness. It wasn’t long before the first and fastest ones returned and then the rest showed up thrilling us with stories of night time running. The event, a first time in Redlands and a first time for the Redlands Chamber, could not have been possible without the generous support of race sponsors, San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, Barich & Associates Insurance, KFROG 95.1, Jean Showalter – State Farm Ins., Southern California Edison, New Day Solar, Visiting Angels, Alta Vista Credit Union, Redlands Blueprint & Commercial Printing and JAM Sportswear, what a team!!
The volunteers that secured the streets making the adventure safe are to be thanked as well, without them the course would not have been open and accessible.
It was a dazzling event that left a sparkling impression, hats off to everyone !!!
