Charting a 5K course, the Neon Dash kicks off at Portland International Raceway on Saturday, August 16, at 8:30 p.m. Gates open at 6:30 p.m.<p>
Along with participation in the event, entry includes: * Donation to the race’s chosen charity partner * Temporary tattoo * Runner’s bib and commemorative T-shirt * Additional swag item * Admission to the After Glow party<p>
As the sun sets and darkness blankets the city, runners, joggers, and walkers of all ages run, jog, or walk through the Neon Dash, a luminescent jaunt that benefits a chosen charity partner. To the soundtrack of adrenaline-boosting tunes, participants clad in white T-shirts make their way through a glowing foam and bubble zone and four glow zones, each filled with volunteers armed with a different color of intense UV neon. Once across the finish line, they'll attend the After Glow Party, which bathes them in the otherworldly illumination of black lights and the accompanying joy of wearing a self-satisfied smile as they play games and enjoy entertainment for the rest of the night.
