Two runners on a scenic path in Philadelphia.

Update: Blossom is switching things up from last year and there will be no food trucks. There will be tables of Philly food and a beer garden, however.

Competing in a race can be fun. There's the camaraderie, the adrenaline rush and the feeling of accomplishment. 

Having to wake up at sunrise to run isn't so fun, though, especially if you're not a morning person.

That's why the Night Race & After Party benefiting Blossom Philadelphia is great – it starts at 6:30 p.m.

The race will take place Thursday, May 24, at the Morris Arboretum. 

Located in the Northwestern corner of Philadelphia, the lush, green space includes a formal rose garden, a collection of outdoor sculptures and tons of plants from North America, Asia and Europe.

At the finish line, there will be a beer garden and tables of Philly foods. Blossom is switching things up from last year, when there were food trucks at the post-race party.

When registering for the race, there are a few options. Runners can sign up for the 5K run with after-party access, or the 2K walk with after-party access.

Non-runners cheering friends and family on can sign up for just the party.
