Live Better

Neon Run

Get ready for lots of light, colour and action! The Neon Run is nothing like your standard fun run.

It’s a fun run with a difference – think pulsing music, DJs, strobe lights and sound-activated wristbands, all while you run through the balmy night air. Perfect for all levels of fitness, this 5 km nighttime event leads runners, joggers and walkers through four zones, each dedicated to rock, disco, pop or house music. And when you reach the end? There’s a neon dance party waiting for you to celebrate with your friends.

Neon Run is also an opportunity to raise money for beyondblue and their important work in reducing the impact of mental illness on our community. 3 million Australians are living with depression or anxiety, and beyondblue seeks to help by raising awareness and understanding, empowering people to seek help, and supporting recovery, management and resilience.

Last year’s Neon Run events were all sell-outs around the country, and this year it’s expected that 5000-10000 participants will get involved at each location – so don’t wait! The Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane events are sold out, but Melbourne and Gold Coast are open for entries now.

Neon Run comes to Melbourne on Saturday 21 February and Gold Coast on Saturday 2 May, 2015. Sign up or find out more at
