What: In this run whose concept originated from the United States, participants are blasted with non-toxic UV neon powder along the 5km route.
There are three zones, each with a different colour: green, pink and orange. The powder will glow under these special lights.
After the race, there is an after- party for runners to boogie till the wee hours.While the crowd dances, powder will be showered on them every 15 minutes.
Polytechnic student Clarissa Tan, 18, who had been curious about fun runs for a while, signed up for the Blacklight Run.
She says: “It’s one of the newest fun runs in Singapore and I like the idea of glowing in the dark.”
