The world’s first running music festival hit Vancouver on Saturday night, and it was a total party.

The Night Nation Run hit the PNE, bringing lights, lasers, and live music, all mixed into a five kilometre run.

Taking part in 35 cities across North America, the Night Nation Run has attracted over one million people, all with a mission to raise funds for Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), which seeks to accelerate the pace of research and get new therapies to cancer patients quickly.

Celebrating life, friends, family, and music, here are photos and videos from the Night Nation Run Vancouver 2016:
