Neon Vibe 5K at Campbell’s Field and Riverwalk in Camden N.J. takes place on Aug. 31.
Neon Vibe 5K is an “after-dark, fluorescent glow light fun run” open to all ages. Pets are excluded. In a similar fashion to the popular ’color runs,’ participants will be doused with paint at checkpoints throughout the race. The difference is, these ‘glow zones’ are equipped with UV lights and dance music to invoke a party vibe and energize runners as they pass through. Once they have crossed the finish line, runners are invited to stay and celebrate at the “Aftervibe” post-race dance party.
A portion of the proceeds benefit the Children’s Miracle Network affiliate in each of the race’s locations nationwide. Funds from the Philadelphia-area race will be donated to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Race registration is currently open and costs $45 in advance or $50 on the day of the race, and includes a Neon Vibe t-shirt, glow paint powder and a runner’s bib.
