The 2014 Carterville Chamber of Commerce Glow Run was a huge success with 366 runners and walkers participating. The Malone’s Early Learning Centers Fun Run had 125 runners who ran for trophies, prizes, ice cream and a ride ticket. We want to thank our sponsors, the City of Carterville, our participants, and our Chamber members and volunteers who helped make this race possible. We hope to see you again next year.

The September 5th Twilight 5K Glow Run/Walk Race starts and finishes at the Carterville Free Fair at Cannon Park on Greenbriar Road in Carterville. Race registration and packet pickup will be at the Carterville Community Center from 5 pm to 7 pm. The GLOW RUN race begins at 7:30 pm.

This, along with the location of one of the nation's top junior colleges, John A. Logan College, makes Carterville the perfect place for families.
