“Thank you for keeping The Night Run 5k alive”, he said after crossing the finish line. “Last year, my family ran it and I watched on the sidelines, it became my goal to run this year. I lost 70 pounds over the last 12 months preparing for this moment, you don’t know how much this means to me!”

Gorgeous Course – Twilight Start Under the Stars!
Starting from Main Street in Kierland Commons, walk or run around the gorgeous Kierland Westin Golf Resort under the stars. We recommend a headlamp or flashlight for our 6:00 pm “twilight” start and the unlit golf course will absolutely darken during the run. This timed event has some twists, turns, and hills along the unlit golf path of Westin Kierland Country club (see map below) so we encourage runners and walkers to enjoy the beautiful scenery and stars while watching their step and using a headlamp or flashlight to stay on the cart path.
All event registrations support AZ’s own cancer charity: Check For A Lump! Since 2019, we’ve raised over $10000!
