- $24 for one entry in The Neon Run (up to $49 value)
At Candlestick Park on Saturday, June 7, runners don either glowing costumes or plain black or white T-shirts for a neon-themed 5K. The race’s course wends through six 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. The parking lot opens at 5pm, with the course opening at 8:45 p.m. Runners should arrive at least 90-minutes before their assigned wave time.
Each registration includes a runner’s bib, neon run headband, a small container of UV body paint/ powder, and a post-race refreshment. For more information, see the event details and the race FAQs.<p>
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.
