Neon Vibe 5K comes to Rockford

Staff Report

The Neon Vibe, a new twist on the 5K fun run, comes to Rockford on July 18 at Sportscore One, 1288 Elmwood Road.

The Rockford event was announced earlier this week by Neon Vibe’s Executive Director Garth Elmms and will start around 6:15 p.m. and last until 11:00 p.m.

The event includes a party before the run, complete with dance music, black lights and color cannons to electrify the atmosphere and charge up the runners.

After the run participants can enjoy music from a DJ, more color cannons as well as food, beverages and merchandise from local vendors and sponsors.

“We are glowing with excitement to be a part of the nation’s leading nighttime color run, which is one of the most fun events I’ve ever run,” said Ellms. “From the party to the glow stations and the AfterVibe celebration, the Neon Vibe will definitely light you up and leave you dancing home. We hope runners of all ages come out and participate in this family-friendly activity benefiting a local charity soon to be announced.”
