Register For Glow The Distance For MATS 5K 2020

Get ready to see downtown Morristown in a whole new light this March, because the second annual Glow the Distance for MATS 5k is right around the corner!

When and Where

The course will be set through Historic Downtown Morristown on Saturday, March 14. Racers must lineup up at 6:45 p.m., and the 5k will start at 7 p.m. The start and finish line will be around 733 West Main Street, Morristown, Tennessee 37814.

Glow the Distance

As the sun sets and the scene grows dark, the streets of Morristown will light up with glow-in-the-dark runners. Participants are invited to wear anything that shines, from reflectors and lights to glowing apparel. The most creative costumes will even be awarded prizes for their style. This is a timed race, and there will also be awards for the overall best times in male and female categories.

The 5k

The route will lead the luminous runners through the city, with gentle slopes and inclines along the scenic course. The route will be clearly marked so that everyone can see exactly where to go at every twist and turn. All racers will be provided with a chip timing device, so you can challenge your own personal best time if you’re feeling competitive. Of course, everyone is invited to take the course at their own pace, so you’re welcome to slow down and enjoy the downtown setting if you need a breather.

Registration and Race Packets

The cost for registration starts at $25, and the price will rise after March 13. You can pick up your race packet on site on the race day between 6 a.m. and 6:45, but the organizers may also announce an early pickup location as race day approaches.


All funds raised by the 5k will support the Ministerial Association Temporary Shelter. Since the late 1980s, this group has provided support for those in need throughout Morristown and our surrounding communities. Their services include a warming station, temporary lodging for travelers and stranded motorists, as well as a self-sufficiency program to promote long-term success.
