Moonlight Rave Run set for Friday

Staff Writer

The first of three scheduled 5K Moonlight Rave Runs, organized by Permian Basin Events, will be held Friday at 11:55 p.m. at the Big Spring State Park.
“The view of the Big Spring State Park at night, especially the scenic overlook, is just breathtaking,” said Cherise Felty, co-owner of Permian Basin Events. “It’s always during the full moon, so it’s really bright. Our shirts light up in the dark. We put a decoration on the front that is glow-paint, so the shirts glow in the dark. And we usually pick a neon color so that also glows in the dark. We put several black lights along the run, so that while you’re going by those black lights, the shirts light up even more. Those are just spaced out along the run.”
The three events happen during the full moons in May, June, and August this summer, said Felty.
“We usually have three per summer. So the first one is coming up on Friday, and it is at 11:55 p.m.,” she said. “We encourage people to register online as always, because you guarantee your shirt size and save a little money. The other two runs will be June 9, and Aug. 4. If they want to register on the evening of the Moonlight Run, they need to be there really about 11 o’clock, because we’ll have to close the gate at 11:30 to get ready for the race.”
