https://www.justgiving.com/alabarechristiancare

The event provider of Glow in the Park: Longleat is Alabaré so we ask that you sponsor them when doing the run as they have put a lot of time, money and effort into putting this event on for you. Longleat are committed supporters of Alabaré and the work they do to prevent homelessness in our community.

What’s the minimum age for taking part?

This event is open to people of all ages but please be mindful that very small children may find the crowds overwhelming. We advise children to be 6 years plus. We DO NOT recommend you bring pushchairs as they cannot be seen in the dark so it can become an obstacle for people to fall over.

Do I need to register for a specific wave time?

There are no specific waves. We do try to get everyone out as quickly as possible so take this time to enjoy the warm up, get your face painted or post your pre-glow selfie. Remember to tag us: #GlowLongleat

Do I have to wear a head torch?

Yes, you do have to wear a head torch for your safety. Most of the course is well lit but there are parts that are unlit and parts of the course can be uneven, so you must have a torch to light up your way. You can buy these in the Glow in the Park shop on the day!

Will I get wet at the event?

Maybe, in the Foam Zone you may get a bit damp from the foam and in the Paint Zone we spray liquid UV paint at the entrants. There will be a no play route around the zone if you don't want to get wet. It is advisable not to wear your best clothes. Event T-shirts are available at the event shop or online from £5.

Will I get a medal?

Yes! All our participants will receive a Glow Run medal.
