Get your neon & glowsticks on in this cool run & after-party
Similar to the now well known Colour Run, participants pay a fee to run for charity in teams or as an individual. Most people who join in are running or walking just for fun, although you will see some serious contenders out front.
In exchange for your entry fee, runners/joggers get a cool t-shirt, a runners bib and a neon band. Everyone is encouraged to dress up and bring/wear your own additional neon attire to light up the Gold Coast night.
Neon face paint is available and encouraged, as well as glow sticks and other colourful attire.
With staggered starts in groups of 400 so that the serious fitness freaks, runners, walkers and partyers don't all get in each other's way, this is a healthy fun night out on the Gold Coast.
And when you've finished the run, the night is not over. DJ's are on hand at an awesome after-party to keep the fun going through the night.
