Running: Neon Invasion Fun Run 2013 5K (Philippines)

5 Laps, 4 Eras, 3 Djs, 2 Bands, 1 Party

Counting days for my Manila, Philippines weekend gateway trip. I came across an interesting fun run event on the same weekend --- Neon Invasion Fun Run 2013 5K --- The first ever Neon Fun Run in The Philippines.


I never had the experience running in this type of event so I sent an email to the organisor if the registration is still open and applicable for foreign participants. Good news! Registration is still open until the 5 December 2013.

About
This event is less about speed and more about enjoying a night of neon lights and neon glow body paint under LED and black lights with friends and family (THIS IS NOT A RAVE). 

Each course is designed to light up the night with several UV black light glow zones, upbeat dance music of the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and current top hits and amped runners who are dressed up and ready to party. Although it is a 5k run and everybody can run as hard as they’d like, most just want to light-it-up, have a good time, and dance their way to the finish.

The fun doesn’t end there because the after run celebration near the finish line is the best part of the Neon fun run – New Wave Party for a Cause

However, there is no additional info for foreign participant registration i.e. race pack collection, credit card payment, etc. Guess the event target audience is more for locals. I had to email them separately for enquiries.

Neon Invasion Fun Run will have you and your friends running and glowing crazy with color and dancing all night! It is filled with performers, music, lasers, and a party!

This is for the benefit of the Quezon City Museum.

I am looking forward for confirmation reply by the organisor on my participation. Love to share my experience and review of this event. Will be a good basic 5KM warm-up run for me at MILO Marathons Finals Manila the next morning. Hoping to meet new friends there too.
