You won't know whether to run or dance through these mini party spots and don't be afraid to choose dance, as this is an un-timed event that focuses on fun, not speed. When you cross the finish line, the party will continue into the night as you light up the dance floor at Starz at the epic after party featuring exciting DJs, neon glow and lights.
