We hope you are enjoying this very hot summer. We have many activities and events going on in our city this summer. One of our new events we are hosting at the Hoover Met on July 26 is the Neon Run.
This “glow in the park” run is very unique. It will be held after dark and feature music as well as strobe, spot and ultraviolet lights at the event. Runners will wear reflective gear and carry glow sticks. Foam pits will be in the park, and glow water spray stations will be available.
We had over 5,000 runners attend the Color Me Rad run on June 1 at the Met, so we are expecting a large crowd at the Neon Run.
This group run will be 3.1 miles on a closed course. We will have various themed obstacles along the course for fun as you run.
Once the race is complete, we will celebrate your finish with a D.J. and dance party. This is a great way to spend the evening with your family and friends!
This race is really not for the serious runners but a great way to get people up and moving in a less threatening and non-competitive environment than traditional running races. For additional race information visit our website at hooveralabama.gov.
Also be sure to save the date for our National Night Out held on Aug. 6 at the Grove Shopping Center. National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, strengthen neighborhood spirit with our police and fire community partnerships, and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are fighting back. This is always a very successful event, and refreshments will be provided.
Please remember, your elected officials and the city staff are here to serve you, so please don’t hesitate to contact our office.
We will continue to work to exceed your expectations!
