Is there an age minimum to participate?

Yes, participants must be at least 12 years old to race the course. Ages 12 to 18 can participate only when running with an adult entered in the race, and will need to show proof of age. Ages 18 and beyond do not have any limitations to their entry; they will simply need to show an ID to confirm their entry.

Is the event a timed race?

No – NiteRun events are intended to be a fun way of building up physical strength and agility as well as mental creativity and stimulation. You are welcome to bring your own timers and time yourself. We will be starting our live music and other celebratory activities at a given time regardless of whether or not all the runners have completed the course.

What is included in my registration?

We give you your very own headlamp to guide you through the night. You will also receive a T-shirt at packet pick-up to wear during the race!

What exactly am I expected to do in this race?

Run (or walk) the 5K course with your friends and family, or make new friends! The race is not timed, but there will be prizes and awards for other fun things!

Is this associated with any charity?

Yes, all proceeds from this event benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii.

Can I bring my pet to the event?

No, I’m sorry we do not allow pets at our events.

How does the Packet-Pick-up work?

We will host a Packet Pick-up a few days before each event. Please see event details for dates and times. Upon checking in with your photo ID, you will receive a headlamp, t-shirt, race number, and any other relevant information. We will send out a reminder email to all our registered participants as we get closer to the event. Be sure to Like Us on Facebook so you can keep up with the latest news on event preparation.

Can someone else pick up my packet for me?

Yes, but they must have a filled-out waiver form when picking it up so we know they have your permission. Contact info@niterun.com for waiver information.

What about Late Registration?

Registration will be available on the day of the event if you did not pre-register. Please see event details for times. Please note that the entry fee is lower for participants who register ahead of time, and t-shirts are not guaranteed for late registration. We recommend registering early to reserve your space and get the best deal! 

What do I need to wear to the event?

Closed-toed shoes that you can run in and an outfit that is easy to run and climb in. Because we are running at night, we also recommend bringing something to keep you warm like legwarmers, sweatpants, a beanie, or light sweater.
