11K night race to be held on 11/11/11

How about this bright idea to celebrate 11/11/11?

The 11K Houston Energizer Night Race for a Brighter World will start at 6:30 p.m. Friday at Sam Houston Race Park, 7575 N. Sam Houston Parkway W. The event also will include a 1.1K fun run and walk. Every participant will receive an 11/11/11 technical running shirt and an LED headlight to be worn during the event.

Performers draped in LED lights will provide entertainment, and the post-race party will feature barbecue and beer.

One Million Lights, a charitable group whose mission is to distribute rechargeable solar lights around the world, will be the beneficiary. Houston is the first U.S. city to host the night race, which has been held internationally for several years.

Late registration will be 5-6 p.m. at the race start. Cost is $50 for the 11K and $28 for the fun run. Cash or check only.
