Running isn't as fun when you're alone, much like yelling about spring break. Get sweaty with this Groupon.
- $25 for one entry in The Neon Run (up to $54.88 value)
At Portland International Raceway on Saturday, June 28, runners don either glowing costumes or plain white T-shirts for a neon-themed 5K. The race’s course wends through 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 first waive time is at 8:45 p.m.; runners should arrive at least one hour before their assigned wave time and allow extra time for parking.
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.
