THE first Pietermaritzburg Neon Run took place at the KwaZulu-Natal Botanical Gardens, hosted by Entertainment Live. This type of event is well known in South Africa, however, this was the first to be hosted in the City of Choice.

The event attracted over 700 participants and sponsors such as Sound Mechanix, KFC and Sanbi, KZN National Botanical Garden.

The gardens gained great exposure from the event attendees because some did not know of the various themed gardens that have been developed there. With the distance of 2.5km to five-kilometres of fun walk, it was more about promoting a healthy lifestyle in a relaxed and vibrant atmosphere.

Participants came out in full support of the theme decked in neon colours, glow-in-the-dark accessories and neon face paint. Marshals made it easy and efficient for participants to find the routes to sections following glow points.

Essential services such as the Prestbury SAPS and paramedics were also monitoring the event to ensure the safety and well-being of the participants and fortunately no harm was done. Glow sticks and colorful lights made the whole garden to be filled with beautiful different glowing bright colors­.
