On Friday, Wyoming Medical Center hosted its second Glow Run as part of Casper's celebration of the Cowboy Tough Adventure Race. Hundreds of runners and walkers donned their brightest clothes and accessories for a chance to light up the night. This year, we included a Wellness Fair with 14 different sponsors of good health in our community.
The Glow Run is becoming a must-do event for Casper. Don't believe us? Scroll through the photos below to see all the fun you missed. Or, go to OilCitywyo.com for another great slideshow by Casper reporter Tim Kupsick.

The face painting booth was one of the busiest at the Wellness Fair, and for good reason. Here, a boy gets a layer of war paint before the race.
