Runners and walkers alike will literally be “lighting up” LeFleur East on June 6—as part of the 2nd Annual LeFleur East Flash Dash presented by C Spire Wireless. Last summer, this event drew a sellout crowd of 500 participants (see below for more info), most of whom ran decked-out in their best flashing and glowing ensembles.
Highland Village will again host the event, which features a 5k run/walk followed by the “Flash Bash,” offering post-run food and beverages, door prizes from LeFleur East merchants, live music, fun for the kids and a light show you won’t want to miss.
The Jackson Police Department, Hinds County Sheriff’s Office and many generous sponsors have come together to ensure that this highly unique community event is a tremendous success again this year—so mark the date and make plans to come out and join us.
Flash Dash 2013 Recap…
The 2013 LeFleur East Flash Dash presented by C Spire Wireless was a sold out SMASHING SUCCESS!
Friday night, June 21, 2013 marked the inaugural LeFleur East Flash Dash. This extraordinary event was the first large LeFleur East event and it was a huge hit!
The Flash Dash was a glow in the dark 5k run through neighborhoods in the LeFleur East area. It was held at Highland Village and presented by C Spire Wireless. There were also numerous sponsors and in-kind sponsors that helped make this fun night possible.
Not only was this a night for a first ever glow in the dark run for Jackson, but it was a night filled with all sorts of family friendly fun. There was wonderful food provided by some of the BEST restaurants in Jackson, glow face painting and a candy bar for the kids, a bungee tramp that was enjoyed by all, and live music by two local Jackson bands that rocked the flashiest event in town!
