Blacklight Run Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some common questions you may have.


Are there refunds?

Unfortunately, we DO NOT issue refunds. The logistics of setting up and planning the
event make it impossible. The location and date are subjected to change, however we
will make every effort to maintain it. Some locations may be cancelled due to city
regulations. Just make sure you are good to go before signing up! If for some reason you
can’t make it on the race day, at least collect your SkechersBlacklight Run™ gear, and
say hi to us!

Is Blacklight Run™ Timed?

The Skechers Blacklight Run™ 5k is not a timed event. Runners tend to take their sweet time, to ensure they get every morsel of the UV Glow Powder on themselves, and we realized no one really cares about their speed. We suggest self-timing for anyone desiring a finish time.

Do I need to be a good runner to do this?

Nope. There are plenty of more serious 5ks out there to test your speed and performance. Skechers Blacklight Run™ is all about a Glow crazy night with friends and family. You can run or walk, however you would like!

Do I have to wear the shirt provided?

You can drop us an email at for any change request.

When and Where Can I Get My Packet?
Pre-Event Packet pickup is scheduled on October 14-15, 2017 at Velocity Mall atrium from 1100-2000hrs.

For those that did not collect or have registered after the 15th of October, please make your way down to Palawan Green, Sentosa, Beach Station to our Event Site registration counters where you can collect your event packs before entering the event site. Please bring along your photo ID and soft copy of the confirmation email. Thank you!

Can I get a friend's packet?

Sure you can! They will need to give you a signed copy of the Letter of Authorisation, and a copy of their ID. Also if the person you are picking up for is a minor you will need to have the Letter of Authorisation signed by a parent/guardian and have a copy of their parent/guardian’s ID.

What comes with a standard entry?

Runners will receive a Skechers Blacklight Run Commemorative Race Shirt, an exclusive
Skechers Draw String Bag, Race Bib with Number, and admission to
the best after party with a GLOW THROW every 15 minutes.
All Finishers will also have a BLR Finisher Medal to remember the Run!

What's the difference between standard and vip?

Your VIP packet will include everything in the standard entry with a Skechers Blacklight Run VIP shirt (Black) instead of the standard white shirt. You will also get a VIP Glow Merchandise Pack worth $50 that includes a pair of shutter shades, two LED Jelly Rings and many more. VIP access to VIP start chute AND a glow powder pack at the finish line for our world famous after party! All Finishers will also have a BLR Finisher Medal to remember the Run! – You’ll also be able to rub shoulders with Ahboyztomen celebrity, Joshua Lim!

Is there a charge for parking?

Yes there is a charge for parking at Sentosa Beach station carpark. You can park at the nearby public carpark. Standard charges apply.

Are pets allowed at the event?

As much as love animals, NO pets are allowed in the event site. This is for their safety and the respect for others! Thank you!

Zones and
After Party

Are spectators allowed to the after party?

No spectators allowed to the after party as we need all everyone to be registered! They are not coming out of Skechers Blacklight Run™ after party clean!

Do the “Skechers Blacklight Zones” affect runner vision? Or breathing?

The Skechers Blacklight RunTM zones are basically food grade powder and are 100% natural and SAFE. As with any substance, you want to keep it out of your eyes . Some “Skechers Blacklight Runners” opt to wear glasses or goggles for their eyes and use a bandana or dust mask for their mouths.

In summary: We work pretty hard to make it so our precious “Skechers Blacklight Runners” get as much or as little Glow on them as they like.

Do you have “cleaning stations” at the finish after party?

With a good dusting off, you aren’t 100% clean, but you are totally good for the drive home. It is actually pretty fun to see people still colored up around town after Blacklight Run™ events. If you wish to preserve your t-shirt, just spray your shirt with white vinegar and iron for a long lasting memory. We’ll also be giving Wet wipes and a poncho at the beach station for those taking the public transport out of Sentosa. Thank you.

How does the color affect the inside of cars?

Most people bring some towels for the insides of their cars, just in case. It’s like driving home from the swimming pool in your wet swimsuits.

Are cameras and phones safe to have in the Blacklight Zones?
Our race photographers are totally fine shooting from a medium distance (25-50 feet). If you want to get shots right in the midst of the “Glow” we recommend covering cameras/phones with plastic wrap.
