Neon Run as part of Be Active night of activities
Families and individuals braved inclement weather last Saturday evening for the 3km Neon Run along the seafront in Bray.
Participants donned neon t-shirts and had their faces painted to tackle the challenge, with parents taking on children in the race to the finish line. They went through a ‘blackout tunnel’ to get the most out of the neon colours, and covered the course in great times.
Wicklow Local Sports Partnership arranged the event as part of the ‘BeActive’ night during the European Week of Sport.
Sports lovers were also treated to a session of ‘Pound Fitness’ involving drum sticks, beats and lots of energy.
There was the chance to try out rowing with Bray Rowing Club and yoga sessions, all free of charge.
Night-time events took place all over Europe on the same night. Wicklow was chosen to host one of five Irish events.
The evening also included The Eco Experience - with stationary bikes and rowers set up for those who wished to get active while at the same time learning more about the Eco Trails in Wicklow. Bray was also the 10th European destination to host the epic Ecotrail Running Event which started and finished on Bray seafront earlier in the day. The night-time event was the finishing party for the trail and an enjoyable evening for everyone who attended.
