Paint Ball

Raves are awesome. Lights flashing to the sounds of music; colorful glow sticks spinning shapes in the dark; blacklights making everyone look like photo-negative versions of themselves. But you know what there's not enough of at a rave? Running.

The Neon Splash Dash solves this little dilemma. Throughout the fun-run's 5K course, which winds around Salt River Fields, are Glow Zones, where runners are sprayed with varying hues of "super intense U.V. glow water." This stuff stays on until you reach the finish line. That's when the music goes up, the black lights kick on, and the After Glow party begins. Ever done the Melbourne Shuffle in running shoes?
