Kaskade recently announced plans that will have fans getting their hearts pumping outside of the club, and on to the pavement! The famous dance music producer presents The Spark Run, a family-friendly nighttime 5k run/walk, featuring live music performances, and an interactive and colorfully decorated race course, happening in several US cities this summer!
The début of The Spark Run will take place in Denver, CO on May 9th, with subsequent events happening in Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Chicago, and Charlotte, NC.
Each race course is promised to be “a sensory voyage like no other,” featuring brightly colored light shows and music throughout the entirety of the run!
In an interview with Billboard, “Music evokes a lot of different emotions and triggers different senses. That’s what got me interested in the Spark Run. I’m stoked to take various elements from my live shows, create new ones, and marry them into something as unique as this.”
Event co-founder Steve Estes is equally excited about this project, saying, “We wanted to create a full-blown experience for all of our participants unlike any other 5K out there. The Spark Run marks the first time that a global superstar like Kaskade will produce such an event.”
Registration for all Spark Run events is now open via their website. Included with runner/walker registration are a premium t-shirt, race bib, LED bracelet, and a glow necklace – to get you into the spirit of the Spark Run! Also, check out the website for the awesome map of the 5k course!
