Take A Run In The Dark With The 2022 Eldridge Moonlight Chase
If you are looking to go for a run without the blistering hot heat of the day on your neck, then the 2022 Moonlight Chase is for you!
The streets of Eldridge will come alive on July 9th as the sun goes down, and the community comes out for a race, refreshments, and music under the stars. Thousands of people of all ages take part in the Chase. The Moonlight Chase is not only one of the best runs to run in, but also one of the best as a spectator as the community shows its stuff with decorations and music and cheers along the entire course.
And not only can you go on a great night run, and enjoy the sites, sounds and drinks, but you can also win cash by glowing in the race!
Glow, Run and Win Cash
This year, Townsquare Media and The Play Station want to see you really glow! LED lights, neon clothes, face/body paints, whatever makes them stand out in a sea of nighttime runners!
Runners will stop by The Play Station booth in downtown Eldridge prior to the race so the judges can evaluate their outfits. We'll have $300 in cash and prizes to be awarded in these categories:
- Best adult - $100 cash
- Best duo/group - $100 cash
- Top two youth - $50 in Play Station QC gift cards
The Play Station booth will have free glow sticks, and coupons and you can register to win an ultimate party package for up to 16 kids, worth $429!
Take a look at the winners from last year so you can start working on your costume now!
