ALREADY a successful event across Australia and South America, the Neon Run will make its British debut in Sunderland after it was chosen, alongside Leeds, as host for the first UK Neon Runs.

On the night of Saturday, October 25, fun-runners will be able to take part in a 5km route at Herrington Country Park which will take them through neon zones featuring lasers, strobes, dancers and DJs – and you could be there for free.

We’ve teamed up with organisers Sport 3 Event Management UK to give away two pairs of tickets to the race, worth £30 per ticket.

The thousands expected to take part in the event will be running to the beat of disco, pop and iconic British music.

Participants – who will be given a LED sound-activated flash band and a T-shirt to wear – can choose to run, walk or jog the distance.

They’ll be invited to colour their faces using luminous face paint and there’ll be a dance-off for those wearing the loudest outfits with the chance to win prizes.

Entries are open now at the event website,
