Pretoria, Jozi and surrounding peops listen up… The Pretoria Neon run is just around the corner and if you’re looking for some healthy vibes, coupled with a good jol, then you best be heading to SuperSport Park on the 15th. Bands like Beatenberg, Shortstraw as well as 5FM’s Roger Goode, Poppy and Rob Forbes will all be there to entertain you afterwards and who knows, maybe they’ll hit a run too. What’s the damage for this? The cost is R230 per person, under 11s pay R90 while if four people or more book the price is R190 a person. Tavis Brown from Fourfire tells us more:
Neon Runs seem to be all the rage at the moment. Tell us about this one in particular…
This is not only a South African trend but also an international movement to being healthy. Pretoria has its chance to simultaneously work out and be entertained with Neon Run’s Trademark tour. It’s on the 15th November at SuperSport Park, doors open at 3pm and we suggest getting there early to avoid queues so you can make the race start at 6:30pm. The party goes on until 11:30pm. All entrants will receive an Official Neon Run™ headband and 3 glowsticks
You’ve chosen quite a sporty venue. Why did you decide to go there?
SuperSport Park is an Icon in the Pretoria / Centurion area. It is well recognised as a sporting and music venue and we most certainly have both aspects covered.
In addition to getting outdoors and being healthy, you’ve got a kick-ass lineup in store for the neon runners. Tell us a bit more about that lineup?
Shortstraw and Beatenberg are 2 of South Africa’s top commercial bands currently making headlines at festivals and events around the country and slamming hit singles on the South African charts. We also have top South African DJ’s Roger Goode, Chris Taylor, Poppy and Rob Forbes to round off one crazy Neon Festival.
Any prizes/ surprises on the cards?
We do spot prizes for best dressed so put in lots of effort and you could be rewarded!
Will you be running too?
The Neon Team does love to run but alas we will be too busy ensuring every aspect of the event is running smoothly to participate. We will be represented by a ton of family and friends and all the other Neon Runners out there!
Let’s get down to the ‘important’ details… What do would be neon runners wear?
Neon Runners must wear Neon Colours so they glow brightly during the run and music festival. Be creative and have fun with it! There is also Neon Paint, Glow Sunglasses and extra Glowsticks for sale at our merchandise store in the festival.
