About 1,600 runners and walkers participated in the Neon Vibe 5K in Oak Ridge on Sept. 21.
There were also about 800 volunteers and spectators, for a total of roughly 2,400 people, according to the Oak Ridge Convention and Visitors Bureau, which helped organize the event, the first-ever in Tennessee.
“It was hugely successful,” ORCVB President Katy Brown said.
She said there is not a commitment for another Neon Vibe 5K in Oak Ridge next year, but organizers are likely to consider it. The Neon Vibe 5K is described as an after-dark, fluorescent fun run and walk that has “participants glowing with neon color and dancing all night long.”
