The Kaskade Spark Run: A 5K Like You’ve Never Imagined

‘Ignite the night’ is Kaskade’s latest motto. The Spark Run, hosted by Kaskade, puts a new spin on the typical 5K. Ravers and runners alike can enjoy this fun run; there are no limitations on who can and should participate. Taking place at night, the Spark Run encourages its attendees to dress up in costumes, bring glow sticks and other amped accessories, and most importantly, to have a good time. You can walk or run the Spark Run–either way you’ll be crossing a decked out finish line into the after party that will surely be the coolest of post-exercise cool downs.


Kaskade will not only be running in as many cities as possible for the Spark Run, but also performing live at the after party to celebrate once you’ve crossed the finish line. Throughout the course of the Spark Run, participants will be guided by a light and sound show that will take the 5K to new heights. Course terrain becomes an interactive journey like no other, and before you embark you’ll be equipped with an LED bracelet, glow necklace, race bib, and Spark Run T-shirt.

Kaskade and the Spark Run creators have made this event inclusive and enjoyable for all audiences, and families are both welcomed and encouraged to join in on this unique, innovating combination of exercise, fun, and live EDM craze. Children ages 8 and under can attend at no cost, so make sure to decorate those strollers! Festivities will occur long before and after the Spark Run, with face painting for the pre-run and a jam sesh for afterwards.

The Spark run will be a community involvement activity you won’t want to miss this summer. Its kick off in Denver earlier in May was a huge success, one runner acclaimed the experience: ‘the best night of my life.’

While the Los Angeles Spark Run (partnered with Special Olympics SoCal) is quickly approaching on June 6th, it’s time to start registering your teams. You don’t even have to feel guilty about dropping your cash on a Spark Run ticket; they pair up with a local charity specific to each city and donate a portion of the proceeds in addition to raising awareness for the cause. Other major cities soon to ignite the night are Washington DC, Chicago, Charlotte, and Miami, with dates that are soon to be announced. If you don’t see your city listed on the Spark Run tour, just send in a suggestion and put a location near you on the map!
