In the grand tradition of wacky races (think of runners dressed as Elvis or in bridal gowns or underwear) comes the Neon Dash Houston. Runners — who must come attired in mostly solid white T-shirts — will run, jog, walk or dance a 5K race into four different “Glow Zones.” That’s where organizers will cover participants with neon powder or water (reportedly “safer than kindergarten finger paint and even gluten-free!”) while black lights illuminate the proceedings down the route, provoking insane bursts of color. Post-race festivities include a huge “After Glow” party with DJ music and performances.
8 p.m. Minute Maid Park, 501 Crawford. For information, call 480-340-7160 or visit neondash.com. $30 to $60.
