One of the greatest kickback rewards of attending EDM activities is the inevitable intense workout you get– from enduring subhuman conditions, dancing for hours, and wrestling the massesto get home on public transit. At the recent Electric Daisy Carnival, my friend’s pedometer recorded that we’d “traveled” a distance of over 10 miles; I don’t even remember how many calories it was. Recently, a few organizations have embraced this culture of athleticism and teamwork from the EDM community to promote some insanely creative events. From glow-in-the-dark runs to foamy mayhem, these events all showcase one of the best parts about our community: everybody’s in such damn good shape!

NB: We’re not profiting from any of these ticket sales, and can’t vouch their awesomeness in their debut year, but damn if they don’t look fun!


Electric Run

I think this is one of my favorite rave-inspired events. Throngs of people dress up in as much neon and glow as possible to run a 5k, all ending with an EDM concert at the finish line. Quickly expanding throughout the U.S., this event comes to Brooklyn on September 28th! PS, if their promo vid didn’t quite entice you, just check out how happy this kid was :)

Three more awesome events after the jump!
