NEORUN, the first event of its kind the UAE, is a unique fun evening event that encourages friends and family to get together and run or walk the circuit covered in glowing UV paint. The event, which takes place in the dark, will ensure that every runner is covered in an effervescent glow. Special neon zones, situated every 500 meters, will ensure that the runners are covered in neon paint and also offer unique surprises as motivation to complete the race. Upon crossing the finish line, runners will be rewarded with a party atmosphere, hosted by Radio One deejays Danny C and Saif, thus taking their glow in the dark experience through the night.
