The Harvest Moon Run is a nighttime 5K run & walk in Eureka, Missouri. A glow run like no other through Historic Route 66 State Park! Whether you’re a runner or a walker, you’ll enjoy the paved course with pathlighters throughout, illuminating your steps as you zip by on your way to the moonlit finish line. 

5K participants receive an Energizer headlight to help light the night!
