Supernova 5K Returns To The Kelpies

Supernova 5KAfter the success of last year’s Kelpies Supernova 5K, the event returns to Falkirk in 2017 with a third day added to the format. The fluorescent fun will include a 5k on Friday 10, Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 November.

Last year’s event saw thousands of runners light up the night at Helix Park in Falkirk, completing the 5K route in their best fluorescent kit and each with a Supernova head torch. As dusk fell, the magnificent 30 metre, 300 ton Kelpies came to life and provided a stunning backdrop for a 5K with a difference!

A fantastic atmosphere was generated by all runners and the fancy dress efforts were something to be admired. Tutus, glow sticks, leg warmers, LED glasses, and plenty of fluorescent gear was on show, and runners ranged from tiny toddlers to glowing grandparents, all adding to the event’s feel-good factor.

Early bird entries for the Kelpies event in 2017 are open now and will be available at a discounted rate until midnight on Sunday 12 February 2017. To enter and find out more, head to the Kelpies Supernova 5K website.
