Poole Park will see its first night time Dorset Neon Run on Saturday 8 April 2017 in aid of Diverse Abilities, the only charity that supports children and adults with disabilities in Dorset.
Those that sign up can run, dance or walk around the 5k route and will be provided with glow sticks, bracelets and neon paint to help light up the night and glow as they go.
The Dorset Neon Run is open to anyone over the age of 12 and participants will also receive a branded event t-shirt with their neon bling.
Local radio station Hot 102.8 will provide sizzling sounds for runners as they register in the event tent and there will be a warm up from Poole clubbercise instructor, Olivia Storey, just before they set off to light up the night along the 5k route.
Those attending the Dorset Neon Run will also be able to enjoy on-the-water activities with Rockley Watersports, who are lighting up the lake for the evening.
Ashley Weedon, events manager at Diverse Abilities, said:“We are extremely excited for our first ever Dorset Neon Run taking place in Poole Park. It will be a really fun event with plenty of food stands and refreshments for runners and supporters alike. We hope many local people take part in our neon run which will help us light up the lives of children and adults living with disabilities in Dorset.”
A second Dorset Neon Run will also take place at Lodmoor Country Park in Weymouth on Saturday 23 September.
