Races are like multi-course meals: you should always pace yourself and drink a ton of lemon-lime sports drink. Take on the next course with this Groupon.
- $27 for a 5K race entry ($59.95 value)
Charting a 5K course, the Neon Dash kicks off at the Salt River Fields at Talking Stick Resort on April 19, at 8 p.m. Gates open at 6 p.m.
Along with participation in the event, entry includes:
- Temporary tattoo
- Donation to the race's chosen charity partner
- Runner's bib and commemorative T-shirt
- LED cheer stick
- Admission to the After Glow party
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.
