Ready for a bright and exciting Saturday night? Look no further! The Neon Dash is finally coming to your city! Neon Dash is a 5K fun walk/run for all ages no matter your athletic level! There is something for everyone here. The walk/run starts at dusk with a neon glimmer inviting thousands of walkers, runners, joggers and dancers to make their way through FOUR Super Intense Ultra-Violet Neon color zones. As darkness falls, the light just gets brighter, the fun more funner, and the awesome memories more vivid, we promise!
If you still have energy left to burn, the After Dash Bash is THE place to be. The music, performers and participants covered in Neon- will all be dancing the night away! Don’t forget to swing by the photo booth so you can snag the ultimate glowing Facebook Profile Picture. You know you have to!
Exercising has never looked or felt this good!
We dare you to not have a good time! At Neon Dash it is our philosophy to live each day to the fullest, to inspire change in ourselves and others, live bright in each moment, and strengthen bonds between family and friends. We believe anyone can make a change, no matter how big or small, no matter where the starting point, it all begins with a first step, why not make it a bright one?
We only have 2 rules-
- All Participants MUST Wear a Solid White T-Shirt, Decorated Team Shirt, or given Participant Shirt during the Race
- All Participants MUST have a great time – NO EXCEPTIONS!

Packet Pick-up allows you to quickly snag all of your goodies before the big night. Think of it as V.I.P. Access on Black Friday! Stop in, snag your swag, dance to some music, and you’re outta there!
Now you can arrive in style at the Big Night, already decked out in your gear! Try not to laugh at everyone who’s standing in line waiting for theirs! We’d love to see you early, so we HIGHLY ENCOURAGE you to attend! Here’s the best part- it’s open to everyone FREE OF CHARGE!
*NOTE – Anyone picking up Goodies MUST bring their BAR-CODED TICKET & SIGNED WAIVER with them. Your ticket was emailed to you when you made your purchase, and the waiver is in the last page of the Event Packet. YES, you can pickup other friends’ Goodies as well- as long as you bring their TICKET & SIGNED WAIVER
For those of you smart enough to attend Packet Pickup- there’s nothing for you to do when you arrive! Kick back, visit the sponsors, dance to the music, and enjoy all the people-watching glory you want! Just make sure you give yourself enough time for parking & to get to the Start Line!
For the rest of you- PLAN AHEAD & GET THERE EARLY! Since this is the COOLEST event around, lines can be quite long! Once you park, make your way to the Check-In Tent to grab your Goodies! You’ll probably have to walk back to your car to change into your participant shirt/gear and leave your belongings (no, we don’t have a Bag Check!) If, by slim chance we’re not SOLD OUT, you can even purchase tickets at the Registration Tent.

We believe firmly in giving back to our communities. We wouldn’t be able to put this event together if it wasn’t for the help of our chosen Charity Partners, and we sincerely appreciate them! Donating back to them is the least we can do. You can view our previous Charity Partners here.
Not ready yet! Check back 2 weeks before the event!
