Organized by the bright students of Tuanku Bahiyah Residential College, University of Malaya, here’s everything you need to know about the exciting running event for a good cause:
1. 4 unique and fun-filled zones
Forget the normal and boring routes that other running events in KL offer, Neon Run spices things up with something eccentric. Held in the heart of University of Malaya, come experience a night of vibrant lights, music, and fun!
With 4 zones that offer unique experiences and challenges, you’re definitely in for an unforgettable night! These zones include:

Classy Foam: The Miraculous Snow Zone
Looks awesome! So if you’re tired of all the mundane after-run pictures, worry not as the Neon Run is not only Insta-worthy, but also boasts a techno-futuristic vibe that’s one-of-a-kind.
2. A slew of fun carnival games and performances
Another way in which Neon Run is different from other running events out there is their blend of exciting full body experience with joy and laughter. With a slew of booths set up which offer participants fun games to delicious food, Neon Run has something for everyone!
The fun doesn’t stop there too as there will also be a stage area where a few local celebrity hosts and performers will keep the party going till midnight!
3. Get some amazing goodies from the colourful race kit!
Well, no running event is complete without some racing kits right? More so, for an amazing event such as this! Participants will not enter Neon Run empty handed as upon registration, you will receive a race kit which includes special goodies, such as:
- A limited-edition T-shirt of Neon Run 2020
- Drawstring Bag
- Goodies Bag
- Race Bib
- Neon Kits,
Furthermore, the medals actually have a secret meaning to them. A metaphor for our run against cancer, five of the medals can be fitted together seamlessly to form a pentagon which symbolises that each one of us represents a part of a larger collective. Together, we are one.
Woah, definitely worth it for the goodies alone, let alone for the amazing neon-futuristic course!
4. Run for a charitable cause against cancer
The most important part of Neon Run 2020 : Run Against Cancer, is in its name itself as the proceeds from the event will go to raising funds for The National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM) and the welfare of University of Malaya.
