Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Glow sticks, mu­sic and a whole lot of run­ning will be the theme at Auck­land Domain this Fri­day for the in­au­gu­ral Run the Night event. Billed as New Zealand’s first ever par­tythemed run, the event is or­gan­ised by Massey Uni­ver­sity for peo­ple aged 16 and over. Massey Uni­ver­sity direc­tor of mar­ket­ing and stu­dent re­cruit­ment Vasso Kout­sos says it’s an op­por­tu­nity to get Auck­lan­ders mov­ing. The al­co­hol-free evening fea­tures a 5km ‘‘party on the move’’ with thou­sands of lights and over 100 con­cert-qual­ity speak­ers spread across the course in the Auck­land Domain, event direc­tor Scott Rice says. Mu­sic is in­te­gral to Run the Night, with tick­ethold­ers given the op­por­tu­nity to have ad­vanced in­put into the playlist. The af­ter-party will in­clude a 90-minute DJ set from duo Jupiter Project. Gates open at 6.30pm and the run/dance starts at 8.30pm. Visit run­thenight. co.nz for tick­ets.
