On Saturday, April 13, the Gnarly Neon 5K kicks off at Douglas and Waco, near the Century II Performing Arts & Convention Center, at 9 a.m., with waves of racers starting every 15 minutes. The party continues afterward at The Brickyard in Old Town, which will remain open on race day for all ages until 10 p.m. with live music by Ten Day Wish. Participants are encouraged to wear white or a crazy costume, though neither is required.
Gnarly Neon 5K
Quick—what are the colors of a rainbow? If you hesitated in answering that question, participating in an all-ages Gnarly Neon 5K could provide you with a wearable cheat sheet. During the race, spectators armed with nontoxic, washable powder make it rain blue, pink, yellow, green, and orange on runners as a live DJ pumps out high-energy beats. Each Gnarly Neon race raises money for charities like Children's Miracle Network and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
