Neon 5K Run set to light up Sunderland


Are you ready SUNDERLAND? Neon Run has finally arrived in the United Kingdom with two new events, and Sunderland is in the thick of the action.

This worldwide phenomenon is the biggest night-time spectacular never before seen in the UK. The event is set to light up Sunderland with the most innovative and mind-blowing fun run and entertainment extravaganza ever seen on Saturday October 25, 2014.

Neon Run is a 5km night-time spectacular run with four unique on-course neon zones of rock, disco, pop and iconic British music featuring lasers, black lights, strobes, dancers, and DJs to keep you entertained along the course. Neon Run events are currently held across Australia and South America and attract thousands to each neon-charged event


Chris Alexander, Chief Operating Officer of Sunderland Live said, “We’re delighted to be bringing  another fantastic event to Sunderland which will add another exciting element to our ever-growing events programme.”

You can choose to run or take your time and walk or jog the distance, there’s a group to suit anyone. When you cross the line the party is just getting started, as you then get to dance the night away to the sounds from your favourite DJ artists.

Everyone loves freebies and these are two of the coolest you’ll get when you enter a Neon Run;

  1. A LED sound activated flash band,
  2. A loud event t-shirt.

But that’s just the start of the colour; you provide the rest or take advantage of the luminous face paint available at the venue for a small fee, as well as merch. Outfits that righteously blow the organisers’ minds will find themselves in an old-fashioned dance off on the stage to win some cool prizes.

Take part in an experience unparalleled by any other that sees two worlds merge as one.

The Neon Run showcases the city’s iconic locations backlit by the colours of Neon, pumping music and supported by ground-breaking production which all climaxes with a dance spectacular. Never has a run been this much fun.

Expect the unexpected and ensure you bring your Neon inspiration and leave your inhibitions at home. The countdown is on to the biggest night-time run for those up for some serious fun, the music starts now.

Neon Run Sunderland is produced by Sport 3 Event Management UK with the support of Sunderland Live.

Neon Run Sunderland will take place in Sunderland at Herrington Country Park on the evening of Saturday October 25, 2014.
