Local disability charity, Diverse Abilities, is excited to be holding its third Dorset Neon Run in Poole Park on Saturday 27 April and is proudly sponsored by Castlepoint shopping park.

Last year, those that took part in the evening event and glowed around the course, had a great time while raising over £10,000 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.

A local DJ will play sizzling sounds during registration at the event, to get everyone in the party mood and there will be a warm up from a Zumba instructor just before setting off to glow up the 5k route.

Sue Reid, events manager at Diverse Abilities, said: “We are extremely excited for our third 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 the event this year which will help us light up the lives of children and adults living with disabilities in Dorset.”

The Dorset Neon Run is open to anyone over the age of 12 and under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. On the night, registration is from 7pm, with the warm up at 9.10pm and the race starting at 9.30pm.

Phase one pricing is open now and entry is £10, increasing to £20 closer to the event. To find out more or sign up visit
