Get ready for neon lights, chart-topping musos and electrifying DJs in a not-to-be-missed mix of sport and entertainment coming to Bloem this month.

The cost is R250 per person, under 11s pay R90, while if four people or more book, the price is R200 a person. Every ticket includes entry for the race, the music festival, glow sticks and an official Neon Run head band.

The 2015 tour includes more UV, neon paint, graffiti walls and lasers than ever before, with participants at each event in line to win amazing prizes including the use of a Mitsubishi car for a year. Discovery members taking part also get Discovery points.
