Light up the night and experience a unique, sensory 5k run under the watchful eyes of the iconic Kelpies! Ideal to run with friends for a night out with a difference, or to take on with the wee ones to have some family fun together.

Sign up in support of Cruse Scotland in this run around Helix Park and The Kelpies and join hundreds of others in their bright, neon and glow-in-the-dark running gear or costumes on either Friday 14 (8pm) or Saturday 15 March (8pm). Your fundraising efforts will make a big difference to adults and children in Scotland who need additional support with their grief.

This fantastic route is a great opportunity to explore the home of two 30-metre high horses! The Kelpies are mythical creatures who love to play at dusk, each one weighs over 300 tonnes. Why not get together with your family and friends, grab anything that glows or flashes, and go on an enchanting journey of light and sound where you will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the magical Kelpies.
