Looking to stay fit, dress up in bright colors, and enjoy your favorite music? Mega-DJ Kaskade hears you, and he’s bringing all of this and more with the Spark Run tour. Coming to six cities—Denver, CO (on May 9 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park); Los Angeles, CA (on June 7 at the Pomona Fairplex); Washington, D.C.; Miami, FL; Chicago, IL; and Charlotte, NC. Each tour date will start with a 5k run/walk during which participants are encouraged to wear fun costumes, carry glow sticks, and dance around. The run will culminate in what is being dubbed the “Ultimate After Party,” complete with DJs and live performances at the finish line. The event is family-friendly, with kids 8 and under admitted for free. Kaskade himself will perform at the Denver date, and he’s expected to run at all of them, so keep an eye out!
