The Atomic City will “light up the night” with a brand new event, the Neon Vibe 5K, that starts after dark at A.K. Bissell Park in Oak Ridge.
The Neon Vibe 5K is an after-dark, fluorescent glow light fun run that will have participants “glowing crazy with color and dancing all night long.” Starting with the 5K, participants will run a traditional, non-competitive 3.1-mile course with four UV black light “glow zone” color stations and upbeat dance music set up throughout the route.
Volunteers will be on hand to cover the crowd with neon powder that fluoresces under UV black lights. The evening ends with a fun “Aftervibe party,” complete with a DJ, the release said.
With locations across the country, this is the first Neon Vibe 5K for the state of Tennessee. Organizers expect more than 3,000 people to be in attendance. The Neon Vibe welcomes all participants regardless of age or ability.
