So, imagine Electric Daisy Carnival with (hopefully) less drugs and a lot more physical activity. The Electric Run Austin at The Travis County Expo Center culminates a trance-induced combination of electronic music and a 5k run that brings a type of participation art to a colorful fruition. Artists and lighting technicians from the ranks of Coachella and Dreamworks Animations will create an experience fit for a candy-kid dream (see: definition).
Neon, fuzzy boots, flower bikini tops and a bunch of sweaty bodies will run (probably shuffle) around the 3.1 miles of track that will have music at every corner and a water station (thank god). Here is what the track will look like:
There will be a participation cap at 10,000 people and in the electronic music world, there are plenty more than a few thousand dedicated fans to the scene. That said, the event is already 90 percent sold and you should register now either individually for $55 or register as a group of four or more for $50 per person.
But wait! If you use the promo code “DO512″ (case sensitive) you will receive 10 percent off your ticket price, or you can click ‘like’ on the event page for a chance to win a free pair of tickets.
Once you register, you must go to a packet pickup location to receive your bib, participant shirt, glow kit/accessories and yes, I said bib. Drool on.
