Foamin' Holiday

While exercise may come naturally to some, the rest of us need some thorough persuasion. Thankfully, there are events like the Phoenix Neon Dash that disguise burning calories as something much more enjoyable. This colorful 5K course is a nighttime fusion of foam, neon, field games, giveaways, glow-in-the-dark accessories, music, and more.

It kicks off Saturday, September 21, at Fear Farm Sports and Entertainment Complex, 2209 North 99th Avenue in Glendale. The first wave of runners will take to the course at 6:30 p.m. They'll be met by a post-race foam party at the end of theh course. There's also an after-party starting at 10:30 p.m. at Calico Jacks at Westgate, 6770 North Sunrise Boulevard. Registration for the race is $50 through race day. For more information, visit
