Night-time fun-run event Neon Run comes to the UK this year, and is partnering with Virgin Money Giving to enable participants to raise funds for charity.
Neon Run will take place in Leeds and Sunderland this year on 18 and 25 October respectively, run by Sport 3 Event Management UK.
Neon Run is a 5km “night-time spectacular run” with four on-course neon zones of rock, disco, pop and iconic British music featuring lasers, black lights, strobes, dancers, and DJs to keep runners entertained along the course. In Australia and South America Neon Runs have attracted over 10,000 people to each event.

Jo Barnett, Executive Director of Virgin Money Giving said:
“Virgin Money Giving has established some great partnerships since our launch and we’re delighted to be linking up with Neon Run. Our not-for-profit business model and low fees mean that we can help to ensure more of the funds raised go direct to the charities registered with us”.
Shane Smith, Managing Director at Sport 3 Event Management UK said:
“Every participant has the opportunity to create their own fundraising page and raise funds for our preferred charities or their own favourite charity via Virgin Money Giving and engage their friends, family and colleagues in their Neon Run experience, which we strongly encourage”.
Entries for Neon Run UK are now open. Participants can enter as individuals or as part of a team of four or more friends and family.
