The Deal

  • $24 for one entry in The Neon Run (up to a $49 value)

On Saturday, October 19, runners don either glowing costumes or plain black or white T-shirts for a neon-themed 5K. Open from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.—with the first wave of runners starting at 7:45 p.m.—the race’s course wends through four glow stations, which spritz runners from above with a clothing-safe, water-based spray that radiates light. The race closes with a finish-line party dubbed the Neon Festival, which provides live entertainment.

Each registration includes a runner’s bib, neon run headband, a small spray bottle of neon glow water, and a post-race refrehsment. For more information, see the event details and the race FAQs.

The Neon Run

The Neon Run brings the age-old traditions of running competitions into the 21st century, using a 5K course built around glow stations, from which a water-based formula rains down on runners. The liquid radiates light; coupled with the black lights and LED along the route, it creates a surreal confusion of color. The race culminates in a Neon Festival, in which each runner is armed with a personal bottle of glow paint or powder.
