Overview

Take a beautiful and iconic venue, wait until dusk, get the family together (that's everyone – grandparents, uncles, aunties, parents, kids, friends!), dig out the fluorescent clothing and grab everything and anything that glows or flashes. Then set off on a Supernova 5K!

Fun for all the family - no stress, no time limits - just friends and family spending an evening together doing something a little different but a lot of fun! Fancy dress is strongly encouraged - come and light up this iconic venue and make it look even more spectacular than it already does!
