Guam’s first ever Vidration Parade of Lights 5k splashed on to the local scene giving Guam it’s first ever experience of a night run/dance/party. It was a night of dancing and giving all the ages of Guam a taste of electronic music followed by a fun run 5k.

There were no finisher rewards nor were there any records of time allowing runners to just enjoy the event. It did not stop the over 2500 runners from showing up just to have a good time.

Runners were dressed in bright colors and decked out in glow lights to bring out the most of the electronic music experience. The overall experience was great allowing runners to express their night life side as well as their motive to exercise.
