EvaBank Midnight Run 5K

August 4, 2017

at the Cullman Civic Center


What is the Midnight Run?

The Midnight Run 5K is a popular race run every year on the streets of Cullman at midnight. The race averages close

to 1,000 runners per year from across the region, and for the first time ever, the race will be adding a FUN black light

element to the event. This year’s course will feature black light glow stations as well as color stations where runners will

have neon, glowing colors thrown onto them. Serious runners will have the option to bypass these color stations, and the

race will be professionally timed for all runners to receive their times. Awards and cash prizes will be given to winners.

There will also be a black light party before and after the race at the start and finish line! Race starts at the Cullman Civic Center.


What are the details of the race?

The Midnight Run 5K is sponsored by EvaBank and will start and finish from the Cullman Civic Center on Friday, August 4, 2017.

T-shirts and goodie bags will be given to all runners; t-shirts sizes are granted on a first-come, first serve basis, and priority

goes to our pre-registered runners! Pre-registration will open June 1 through August 4 at 5pm and is $25 per runner.

Early packet pick up begins at 5pm – 7pm on Friday at the Civic Center.  Night of

registration will be $30 and takes place from 10pm-11:45pm at the Cullman Civic Center.

Medals will be awarded to the top 3 in each age division as well as cash prizes of $250 to the overall male and  female winner,

and $200 to the overall masters male and female winners. Be sure to come dressed in your best glow-in-the-dark attire;

prizes will also be given to our best dressed runners!

How can I register?

Registration will be open at any EvaBank location across North Alabama, at the Cullman Civic Center, or online (coming soon).


What do I need to wear? Will I get messy running the race?

If you are planning to run the black light portions of the course and have the neon color powder thrown on you, then

you will need to wear a white t-shirt or your EvaBank Midnight Run shirt, which will be white. Runners will have the options

of running through the color and glow stations on the course, as well as participating in the black light parties before and

after the race, so how  messy you get is up to you! Our neon black light powder is designed to be

removed from clothing and will wash off of your skin easily.


What is the schedule for the night of the race?

Packet pick-up for pre-registered runners will start at 10pm at the Cullman Civic Center the night of the race.

The Civic Center will also be open starting at 10pm for night-off registration if you have not already

pre-registered for the race. The pre-race black light party will take place in front of the Civic Center starting at 10:30pm;

don’t miss this chance to walk away with FREE glow items, color packets, and more fun prizes that

will be thrown out at the pre-race party under our black lights. The race will start at 11:59pm on Friday, August 4.

The after race party will start at 12:30am on Saturday, August 5 where a color throw will be held every

ten minutes until all runners have completed the race. Timing is automatic, so results will be live

and times available as you cross the finish line!

Awards will be given away at 1:15am to age categories and overall winners of the run.
