What is Electric Run?
Electric Run is the World’s Premier Night time 5K. The 2017 Recharged World Tour is intensifying healthy living by taking you on a 5k connected journey through light and sound. Experience music pumped across the entire course, exclusive ELECTROBAND technology and themed dance party zones at every kilometre, and a finish line after party with a live DJ. This is your nightlife, amplified. This is Electric Run.
Experience the awe of becoming part of the light and music show with the ELECTROBAND, an exclusive LED technology that connects you to thousands of your new best friends. Feel the beat as the pulsating light from your bracelet guides you to themed dance party zones, accompanied by music every kilometre of your run. Groove to throwback tracks, lose your mind to EDM, get down to classic hip-hop, and party to the most current pop music you and your friends love. Experience the excitement, energy, and soundscape of the finish line party where runners dance to a live DJ, becoming a pixel in the crowd.
Nope. This is not a “5k race”, this is an experience. Enjoy yourself and take in the sights and sounds of the course. If you like one lighting zone or a song that is playing feel free to hang out and dance for a bit.
This year, we’re introducing the Power Hour for runners who are keen to run the course and set personal bests without being interrupted. The Power Hour will give all our serious runners a chance to run the entire 5k in a calmer setting before the crowds arrive.
Prices and event details will be announced along with the next event. Pre-Register now to be the first to know where we are headed next.

At the finish line, get immersed in an epic after party with a live DJ and a light show synced to your personal ELECTROBAND. Connect with thousands of runners through the pulse of the music while a live DJ mixes the hottest beats with a synced light show that will never be forgotten!
This is YOUR electric runway and we invite you to bring the creativity. Thousands of runners (walkers and dancers) will unite and be synced to the music and lights through ELECTROBANDS, but don’t let ELECTROBAND be the only part of your fashion statement; dress to impress and help bring this event to life. We encourage participants to come wearing illuminating lights, neon gear and crazy bright colours. Don’t hold back. Purchase neon and LED gear when you purchase tickets online or at the event.
Details of Pack Collection will be announced closer to our upcoming event. Stay tuned!
There will be several lands each with a different mood. Some will be very upbeat others will be more ethereal. In between these worlds will be areas of relative silence and no lighting elements. These “dark” areas will give the senses a chance to reset before entering the next course land. There will be enough light in these “dark” areas to make it safe to run.
Walkers are very welcome! We can’t blame you for wanting to take in the scenery of the various worlds, we just ask that if you choose to walk, stay to the right so runners can pass safely to your left!
As part of your race pack you get a T-shirt, and some glow gear! Come let your light shine and your creative juices flow. Add your own creative spark by dressing up in other-worldly costumes that glow, shine, blink, and dazzle. Show us all what you’ve got!
Unfortunately, we don’t issue refunds or transfers.
If for some reason you can’t make it to race day, at least come to race pack collection and get your Electric Run gear!
Unfortunately, we don’t offer transfers for Electric Run Recharged.
After the 5k course, you’ll head to the Festival Village where there will be a sound and light party with a DJ playing. We’ll announce the exact times closer to the event.
Yes! In fact, kids 3 and under run for free and don’t need a ticket! You’re welcome to bring your child’s stroller if needed. Please remember that this is also a sound and light party – it will be noisy, loud and very crowded so bear this in mind when deciding whether to bring young children with you. Children over the age of 3 need to register to join in the fun and all children under 12 must be with their parent or guardian at all times.
