Meet at the Nature Photography Center parking lot

After the 5k, stay for a nighttime sky filled with the Perseid Meteor Shower – the best meteor shower viewing of the year. Metroparks will have campfires, snacks, beverages and a naturalist on hand to answer questions until 12:30, with a presentation on meteor watching tips at 10:30pm.

The Under the Moon 5k Series: Experience your Metroparks under the light of the moon. Run or walk the 5k course after dark. Toledo Roadrunners place glow sticks lining the routes marking your safe passage through the night woods. Decorate yourself with glow attire! Just-for-fun – no official timing or scoring, so go at your own pace.

Everyone starts together at the scheduled time; for safety reasons, no late starts allowed.

Fee: $5. Registration required; 5 and under free.
