The Deal

  • $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 5 p.m., with the course opening at 8:45 p.m. Runners should arrive at least one hour before their assigned wave time and allow extra time for parking.

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.

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.

Dress up....have fun! Be prepared for neon powder to be everywhere on your body. If you have allergies or are sensitive to dust you might want to reconsider!
