No one likes a cranky party guest so tents were provided by Dick's Sporting Goods  for us all to catch a few Z's before day two of the party. 
My team wasn't too into dressing up but I love seeing all the people in costumes having fun.  I'm one of those who dresses up whenever I do any running event. Like that's a surprise. 
1. and 2. Love the running skirts and light up tutu's at Race Junkie  3. I LOVE bats so this running skirt by Sew Krazy  is adorable and fun for this relay party. 4. How fun is this bright pink tutu from Tutuabell.

Many of the legs are walked in the dark in this relay so lots of people wear some sort of glowing item.  We had glow sticks we made into necklaces and bracelets.  One team had devil horns which made it super easy to spot your team mate. We saw lots of glow wigs, fun! And the Mini bow's were popular.  I think the mohawks are really fun but we didn't see any of those. 
Coolglow has a huge variety of items to light up your night time walk.


Party favor! and all I had to do was walk 2 legs of the relay. A  7.68 mile and a 6.11 mile. It was a fun 2 day party.
