EPS Events (Event and Production Services UK Ltd) were proud to supply the PA system for the Glow in the Park fun run at Dorney Lake, Windsor on Saturday 8th April 2017. The Glow in the Park events are the ultimate night time 5k fun runs for families and friends to enjoy when they run (or walk) through 6 epic glow zones.
The zones were the Hot & Cold Zone were runners felt the blasts of freezing cold air and the heat of the red hot flames, they enjoyed the spiralling lights in the Time Tunnel, got plastered with UV gunge in the Paint Blast Zone, they stepped back in time with the golden oldies and pulsating light show in the Retro Zone, they glowed with the UV lights, lasers and smoke effects in the Fluorescent Park Zone and fought their way through the bubbles in the most popular Foam Zone.
Tim Hughes who provided a very entertaining commentary for the race spoke to people who had completed the course and most of them said their favourite was making their way through the fluffy foam.
As with most Glow in the Park events this one attracted a mixture of keen runners, novice runners, groups of friends and a lot of families with children. They were all dressed up in their fluorescent outfits, high viz jackets, neon face paint and glow sticks to enjoy the 5k course that took them through the six different zones.
EPS Events used a combination of the ZX 12” & 15” EV (Electro-Voice) high performance loudspeakers for the PA at the start/finish area. The speakers provided a crisp and clear sound for the crowds to hear the music and also the commentary from Tim Hughes, who entertained and interviewed the runners. He was using our professional Sennheiser radio mic with booster antenna which allowed him to wonder around a large area and chat with the athletes prior to the race and also after they had finished.
The event took place at the stunning Dorney Lake, which is a purpose built rowing lake for Eton College. The lake was used for the rowing events during 2012 Summer Olympics and the Paralympics. Its also used for many international rowing events.
The next Glow in the Park fun run is on 29th April 2017 at Kent Showground. For further details and to take part yourself check out www.glowinthepark.co.uk
