Run the Night
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.
