The Night Nation Run is called the World’s First Running Music Festival. It provides plenty of entertainment to go with a fun run. This race elevates music on course to a new level, adding live DJs, light shows, lasers, bubble zones, neon, and black lights. After you cross the finish line, you get into the Main Stage After Party, featuring even more music and top headliner DJs. The first Night Nation Race in NYC took place in the Aviator Sports and Events Center in Brooklyn on June 9, 2018.

This event is a must do for any fan of electronic dance music. You can run, walk, or dance your way through your 5K with music on you every step. An illuminated racecourse will lead you to several selfie-spots DJ stages, finishing with an explosive party with special celebrity performers. About a million people have taken place in Night Nation Runs across the world, celebrating life, friends, and music.
