Thousands of Joburgers gathered at Wanderers Stadium armed in their neon dancing shoes, jackets and umbrellas for the Neon Run 2016 – a 5km run and music fiesta.
Armed with ponchos and a YOLO attitudes, runners chose to crawl, walk, run, roll, skip and ride their way through a wet and wild 5km neon wonderland.
After the finish South Africa’s top DJs including TiMO ODV, Rubber Duc, Goodluck, Dean Fuel, Kyle Watson and iScream and the Chocolate Stix kept bodies moving and the heat and energy up all night long.
The weather may have been less than ideal but that didn’t stop the party.
“It is awesome that the event went on. Come hell or high water, we were excited about the event for months and nothing was going to stop us from getting our glow on,” said some of the runners Lesliegh Clifford and Brad Michalaro
“We had such an amazing time last year and we didn’t to want to miss catching Good Luck and Rubber Duc live on stage,” said another runner Iman Peters.
