There is only one place you should be on October 19, 2013 at 6:00pm. If you are not registered for the time of your life, you will definitely be missing out! This event will be filled will epic lighting, neon, costumes and music that will Simply Blow Your Mind! http://www.theneonrun.com/locations/orlando
Do not expect your typical 5k road race. You will be running through glow zones that will consist of neon glowing water, laser lighting, fog, and music to enhance your experience back to the finish, (the Neon Festival) something that will change you forever! The Neon Festival is a Massive Neon festival filled with performers, music, lasers, and black lights. At the NEON Festival you will have the chance to Dance, Socialize, take Photos and more importantly have FUN!(If you have more questions about how it all works, check out our About Us and FAQ pages.)
#1 All types of people are welcome… whether you're slow, fast, runner, walker, Olympian, tri-athlete or just some who is looking for a thrill.
#2 Dress code- we highly encourage illuminated glow costumes. If you are not wearing a costume you must wear a white or neon shirt for the full NEON experience!

- Towels/change of clothes for post Neon Run!
- Credit Card/Cash- for THE NEON RUN apparel.
- Camera/ Cell phone to share your experience with your friends.
- I also recommend a flashlight, head lamp, or many glowsticks as we will be running in the dark in grass and while they will do their best to help light things up it wouldn't hurt to bring a little something extra.
Your bib should be visible and all times, so if you have a costume on please place bib on the outside of your creation. PLEASE IF YOU ARE WALKING STAY TO THE RIGHT, IF YOU ARE RUNNING STAY TO THE LEFT.
The NEON EXPERIENCE FESTIVAL awaits you once you cross the finish line. The finish line is your gateway to a neon party experience that will go down in history. Your neon glow experience will include music, dancing, blacklights, and food.
