Diverse Abilities, the local disability charity, is delighted to be holding its second night time run in Poole Park on Saturday 21 April.
Last year, those that took part in the Dorset Neon Run and glowed around the course, had a great time while raising £25,000 for the charity that supports children and adults with disabilities in Dorset.
By signing up to this year’s event, you too will have the chance to glow as you run, dance or walk around the 5k route. Participants will be provided with a Dorset Neon Run t-shirt, glow sticks, bracelets and neon paint to help light up the night.
Local radio station Hot 102.8 will provide sizzling sounds while you register in the event tent and there will be a warm up from a clubbercise instructor just before setting off to glow up the 5k route.
Lauren McCullough, events manager at Diverse Abilities, said: “We are extremely excited for our second Dorset Neon Run taking place in Poole Park. Last year was so much fun and everyone had a fantastic time. We hope many more local people take part in our neon run this year which will help us light up the lives of children and adults living with disabilities in Dorset.”
A Dorset Neon Run will also take place in Weymouth on Saturday 8 September.
The Dorset Neon Run is open to anyone over the age of 12 and is £20 to enter before 26 February. Registration is from 7pm, with the warm up at 9pm and the race starting at 9.30pm To find out more or sign up visit www.dorsetneonrun.com
