how does it work?

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.)
