The courses traverse both banks of Tempe Town Lake with its stunning panoramic scenery and includes Tempe Center for the Arts, iconic pedestrian bridge, Tempe Beach Park and Mill Avenue on a Saturday night! There is a place for everyone at The Night Run. Strollers, fun-walkers, first-time racers, parents, grandparents, volunteers, and hard-core runners alike can come together and succeed, and enjoy a wonderful May evening in a unique setting. Come early to enjoy our popular "Owl's Nest" Expo before the 5K8K, or Kids Dash (8 & under), stay late and celebrate on Mill Avenue!


 Both distances will be competitively timed. 11 & under, 12-15, 16-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75+.

As always, complimentary food and beverages will also be provided. Come early and stay late to enjoy the "Owl's Nest" Expo! A wide array of booth vendors will provide valuable information and fantastic giveaways and our Wheel of Fortune will be back as well - so don't forget to take your free spin! Liberty Wildlife will also be returning with their crowd-favorite Live Owl Exhibit!
