Description: Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, has announced that its Dorset Neon Run is returning to Poole Park on Saturday April 24. The Dorset Neon Run is a five-kilometre evening fun run for participants to run, walk, dance, or jog around during the colourful fundraiser. Entertainment and refreshments will be available on the night, and previous years have included HOT Radio DJs and Clubbercise warm-up activities. Early bird entries are now open for £10 per person, and participants are provided with a Dorset Neon Run t-shirt, a glow in the dark pack consisting of glow sticks and face paints, and a fundraising pack. Participants are welcome to make a larger one-off donation in lieu of fundraising for the event. Karen Hay, event manager at Diverse Abilities, commented: “Dorset Neon Run is a really fun event and as it isn’t time chipped allows participants to run, jog, walk, or dance at their own pace. We are looking forward to a night of fundraising in real life after months of socialising online and it’s a great excuse to dress up in neon gear and face paint, while having a laugh with your mates.” Diverse Abilities is working alongside BCP Council to ensure the event runs within COVID legislations as they develop over the coming months. There are also plans in place should government restrictions tighten nearer the time. Dorset Neon Run is open to anyone over the age of 12 and under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. Registration opens on the night from 8pm and the race will start at 9pm. Visit dorsetneonrun.com to find out more and sign up today. Please let us know you saw us on What's On in Dorset!
