    I am an avid runner but I’ve never participated in a race before. This one seems like an awesome way to start! I hope I win so I can join in the fun and get my glow on!!

  2. kettles1008 June 24, 2013 at 11:29 am #

    I love races and this one looks like so much fun! I would love to do it!

  3. Amanda June 24, 2013 at 11:53 am #

    This looks like such a fun race!

  4. Jadon June 24, 2013 at 12:13 pm #

    I like to run.

  5. Candice June 24, 2013 at 12:40 pm #

    This would be so much fun to do with some friends! Like a running dance party.

  6. Jamie June 24, 2013 at 12:45 pm #

    Because my neon pink jumpsuit has never seen the light of day, and that is a tragedy. Let’s race!

  7. Natalie June 24, 2013 at 2:24 pm #

    I’ve never ever EVER been able to do this run! I’m leaving the country on August 28th, so I’d love to end the summer with a bang (and take my boyfriend out for one last awesome party) Thanks for reading

  8. Alison June 24, 2013 at 2:52 pm #

    Woop woop, this looks awesome! PICK ME! PICK ME! It has been SO long since I’ve done a run, and this will get my A$$ into shape! I’D ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS ONE! And neon? Who can beat that? That’s what I thought.

  9. Gina June 24, 2013 at 3:49 pm #

    I need the exercise.

  10. David C. June 24, 2013 at 4:27 pm #

    So. Much. Neon. Swag. My preferred mode of transportation is dancing, so I think I’d kill it in this race.

  11. Chris Bilsborrow June 24, 2013 at 7:23 pm #

    1! 2! 3! GLOW!

    I know this will be the zaniest race ever in PDX… and I’m just broke as a joke.
    I’d glow head to toe!

  12. Shari June 24, 2013 at 8:09 pm #

    Neon at nighttime and lasers at the after party, yes please!! How cool is this?!?! Is it my lucky day? Please say yes! :)

  13. Christine June 24, 2013 at 8:46 pm #

    So fun! I’d love to win these!

  14. Melanie R. June 24, 2013 at 11:14 pm #

    Because I’m fat and need events like this to stay motivated!

  15. Harvard June 25, 2013 at 1:01 pm #

    I love to run and this looks like an awesome race to participate in, but too spendy for a broke college kid… So pick me!!

  16. christina June 25, 2013 at 1:28 pm #

    Because I haven’t run a 5K in FOREVER

  17. Jess June 25, 2013 at 2:02 pm #

    I just moved to Portland, have never done a run event… I’m an 80s baby, so neon is in my blood.

  18. Chelsea B. June 25, 2013 at 2:49 pm #

    I need a reason to get back in shape, this sounds like as good a reason as any!

  19. Meghan June 25, 2013 at 5:51 pm #

    I need to run off my beer belly… That’ll work, right?!

  20. Nicole smith ryan June 25, 2013 at 7:40 pm #

    I would love to do this, I have an amazing glowing outfit sitting in my closet that needs to be worn for this great event!

  21. Becky June 26, 2013 at 8:28 am #

  27. James P. June 26, 2013 at 7:27 pm #

    Pdx Pipeline,

    Please send neon my way to free tickets..

    Thank you

    P.s. In light, if I don’t win I will beam happy for the winner.

  29. Chad June 27, 2013 at 11:53 am #

    I am nocturnal, therefore this is the only race for me

  30. Susie MacMillan June 27, 2013 at 1:52 pm #

    Would love to participate in the downtown version of the electric run. What FUN!

  31. nancy June 27, 2013 at 1:59 pm #

  33. Joanna Smith June 27, 2013 at 2:18 pm #

    I am new to Portland, OR, and the west coast all together! I just moved here from a small town in Pennsylvania. I would love to do this race with my sister-in-law! This way would be a great way to welcome me to the Portland area :)

  34. Libby June 27, 2013 at 2:22 pm #

    I would love to give it a try! Plus I’ve got a race buddy who would love to try it too!

  35. Kalli June 27, 2013 at 2:22 pm #

    I’ve never been a runner, but this summer my goal is to run in a 5K. This looks like the perfect way for me to test my new running skills!

  36. Bill Stewart June 27, 2013 at 2:43 pm #

    Can I meander?

  37. misty talley June 27, 2013 at 2:50 pm #

    How cool it would be to have this as my first organized run. super groovy

  38. misty talley June 27, 2013 at 2:51 pm #

    how cool would this be for my first organized run? super groovy

  39. max June 27, 2013 at 2:55 pm #

    i would love to do this with my girlfriend, it would be my first run! very excited!

  40. Tonya June 27, 2013 at 3:57 pm #

    Because I don’t want to pay $60 to run a 5k. I’d rather do it for free!

  41. Lisa June 27, 2013 at 4:11 pm #

    I am just starting with the whole walk/run/obstacle events…I think that this would be a fun one to do. So pick me! Pick ME!!

  42. Trinity June 27, 2013 at 6:33 pm #

    Id love to win tickets to this run. Ive only done one event run because they cost a lot. I wanna win this.

  43. Eric June 27, 2013 at 7:05 pm #

    I have no legs, so it would be a true challenge, but I have heart and lots of neon, so…

    damn it, ok, I have legs but no tickets!

  44. mary b June 27, 2013 at 7:48 pm #

    with a razor blade, I’ll cut a slit open, in the sky, and the luminous beam, will heal you honey, heal you, all neon like.

  45. Missy June 27, 2013 at 8:35 pm #

    2.74 miles seems like a reasonable distance to dance the ENTIRE way!

  46. Aaron June 28, 2013 at 11:46 am #

    Because I like to do all of the wacky Portland events. I have been Darth Vader, Santa, and a Zombie. I look forward to being a glow stick.

  47. Candace June 29, 2013 at 8:48 am #

    We want to do this run sooo bad! We just did the Rugged Maniac with our 6 kids and a huge group of our friends….team: Dirty Lil Britches :) and we had soooo much fun!!! But it was expensive for us to sign up all our kids!
    We were going to do the electric run but we are too busy getting ready for our wedding on July 27th so this run is PERFECT timing!!!

  48. Zuwena Belt June 29, 2013 at 3:36 pm #

    Umm durr pick me coz like I am broke and stuff and um I like to run and stuff. I mean come on neon+running+nighttime+party! It’s hard to provide a compelling argument for the most obvious surreal fun ever conceived! Please select who you deem worthy. :)

  49. Adriana June 30, 2013 at 6:12 pm #

    Pleasssssssssssssssssssssssse PICK ME!!!! I have never been in any type of marathon before and me and my friend are trying to be more healthy and I know we would have a blast. Glow Sticks, Music, Running, all when the sun goes down…what else could you ask for :)

  50. Coral June 30, 2013 at 6:15 pm #

    I have tested my endurance dancing all night in glowing gear, how fun it would be to run!

  51. Angela July 1, 2013 at 9:58 am #

    ….because my nickname is Glow Blow. and running in the dark while glowing makes me less self conscious about running.

  52. Kyle July 1, 2013 at 12:09 pm #

    I want to win so I have a reason to wear neon running gear and finally beat my wife at a race!

  53. Rebecca Sudduth July 1, 2013 at 3:42 pm #

    Love running but I haven’t done a race like this!

  54. Chris July 2, 2013 at 7:12 am #

    My wife and I just moved to the Portland area from Seattle and we think this would be a fun and great way to get to know people.

  55. Jann Unterberg July 2, 2013 at 10:22 am #

    My two kids, ages 19 and 24 are to be in Portland during the month of August, adjusting for our permanent move to SE in September. They will be staying in accommodations right downtown on the PSU campus. What better introduction to Portland than this? Free tickets to the event could make their transition from the remote lifestyle they have lived in Alaska since birth to the vibrant city life of Portland a much smoother acclimation. Also, they both would be thrilled!

  56. Heather July 2, 2013 at 12:30 pm #

    I volunteer at a lot of the runs around Portland but have never participated. This one sounds right up my alley.

  57. Taylor July 2, 2013 at 7:10 pm #

    My brother and I are moving to Portland at the beginning of August! This race would be a wonderful way to start life in the city. Neon, glow sticks, dancing – ohhh yeeeah – I’m in!

  58. Logan July 2, 2013 at 7:59 pm #

    24 years of isolated life in an Alaskan igloo. Yeah, that’s weird. Am I weird? Absolutely…..not :) Moving to Portland–definitely an odd decision.

    You know you’d like a new flavor of eccentric oddities to Keep Portland Weird.

  59. Virginia July 3, 2013 at 3:29 pm #

    I’m doing a handful of day time races this summer, this would be amazing to attend to close out the season! Evening race, how fun!

  60. Nhat July 3, 2013 at 5:07 pm #

    My cousin love to run and I want to spend time with him.

  61. Nhat July 3, 2013 at 5:08 pm #

    I would like to attend because I want to spend time with my best friend, and she loves the show.

  62. christy berg July 3, 2013 at 5:34 pm #

    i have never been to or heard of this event and it would be great exercise

  63. Tara July 3, 2013 at 7:23 pm #

    Working on running more!! This event would be a fantastic motivator!!

  64. Anna July 3, 2013 at 7:47 pm #

    I don’t have much of social life because always feel too busy. But if I win, it’ll be a good excuse to let it all loose.

  65. Zahuindanda DeForrest July 3, 2013 at 7:53 pm #

    Me and a buddy love doing runs like this and would be a killer experience!

  66. max July 3, 2013 at 8:30 pm #

    really want to WOW my girlfriend on a date…one epic dream

  67. Marcie July 3, 2013 at 8:49 pm #

    A perfect prep for the Burn, 59 days folks!

  68. Adrianne Horner July 3, 2013 at 8:49 pm #

    This run looks awesome!!! I haven’t done a run before and would love to start with this one!!! Yeah Buddy!!!

  69. Eric Kneifel July 3, 2013 at 8:55 pm #

    I would love to do this run because I run so fast it would be like a long neon streak of light (okay, maybe not, but it’d be a fun run)

  70. Gayle July 3, 2013 at 9:01 pm #

    I want to glow and run!

  71. Scott July 3, 2013 at 9:28 pm #

    Sounds like fun.

  72. Nola Borland July 3, 2013 at 10:29 pm #

    ************ Would love to attend with my bestie ************ I lost my job and am looking for some good times.

  73. Rachel July 3, 2013 at 11:46 pm #

    I can’t run, but I can walk…And this sounds like a great place to be walking.

  74. luis July 4, 2013 at 12:18 am #

    i will be there

  75. erica July 4, 2013 at 1:37 am #

    My birthday is August 18th and this would be a great way to ring in my 29th birthday!!

  76. Kali July 4, 2013 at 7:50 am #

    Run a mile, dance a mile, dance-run .74! Yep, that’s me! Bring it!

  77. Ditty Nicolaides July 4, 2013 at 8:51 am #

    I may be 68 but I’m certain I can dance for 5K! I did it for the Starlight Parade! And I’m still in training!

  78. Tammie July 4, 2013 at 8:54 am #

    sounds like a great way to make some new friends

  79. Erik July 4, 2013 at 5:27 pm #

  80. Lisa Hummel July 5, 2013 at 9:38 am #

    Would love to revisit my high school years with music, neon and fun !

  81. Melissa July 5, 2013 at 11:15 am #

    Pick me! I’ll racewalk the race with good USATF racewalk form. I mean, what’s more spectacular (or a spectical?) than a glowing racewalker? Feel free to laugh at me as I pass you…

  82. Tiffany July 6, 2013 at 9:37 am #

    I would love to do this with my 14 year old daughter!

  83. catherine h July 7, 2013 at 11:16 am #

    I just ran a half marathon last week and definitely need a “fun run”

  84. Grant July 8, 2013 at 10:11 am #

    You mean running can actually be fun!? I gotta try this out. And as an added bonus Neon glow are my two favorite words in succession… want!

  85. Danielle July 8, 2013 at 11:45 am #

    Visions of disco finger dancing fill my head as I think of running this race. I’m actually dancing while I write this, that’s how excited I am for this Neon Glow Run!

  86. Katya July 8, 2013 at 11:48 am #

    sounds like a really good time!! pick me!

  87. Laura G. July 9, 2013 at 11:50 am #

    Because it would be awesome to get to do this finally after living in the area for awhile!

  89. Erika July 11, 2013 at 12:16 pm #

    Because I can’t make the electric run this year, and this looks awesome!

  90. Mathew July 11, 2013 at 12:57 pm #

    I want to win this so badly! I really want to do this run, but I know that I probably cannot afford this otherwise.

  91. Audrey July 11, 2013 at 1:26 pm #

    Oh! You would seriously make my entire life if I were to be chosen! I love neon and dancing. Please PLEASE pleaseeee choose me?!

  92. JOY MOORE July 11, 2013 at 2:44 pm #

    I was diagnosed with Sytemic Lupus 12yrs ago, given 1 yr to live by dr. 11yrs ago. Been working w/HolySPIRIT & have of late been “called” to visit your gen area but has yet to come in play. That I MUST stay Out of Sun – This event is at nite. I live in Amarillo,TX – But love to drive & in fact been given instruction to go to NW area for healing & to be of Service. No Specifics as to exactly when or what ALL. Maybe HS WILL USE PDX (Unusual -UNEXPECTED – And Strange if so but…) If you feel MOVED IN MY DIRECTION, I WILL SEE YOU THEN. If not, ~ Then Sometime. SOON. Portland…ALWAYS Wanted to go there!

  93. Sandra July 11, 2013 at 2:59 pm #

    Would like to win this for my son-in-law, an avid runner. He missed his last run because his grandmother died in MT and he had to forfeit the $100 entry fee. This would be sweet for him.

  94. michelle July 11, 2013 at 4:08 pm #

    sounds amazing…would love to run with my boyfriend. we will totally dress to impress..

    thank you pdxpipeline

  95. Keri July 11, 2013 at 5:34 pm #

    This would be an exciting way to spend time with my daughter before she heads to college and an additional prep for PTC!!

  96. TJ Norris July 11, 2013 at 6:08 pm #

    Brighter than white, the night will be full of light alright!

  97. Jeremy Brill July 11, 2013 at 6:58 pm #


  98. Kimberly July 11, 2013 at 7:07 pm #

    I am a fitness instructor so many runs are mornings so i miss them, would be awesome to do a night run.

  99. Allie July 11, 2013 at 10:18 pm #


  100. panda July 11, 2013 at 10:58 pm #

    the army sorta ruined running for me, but a glowing neon swaggy affair could bring it back!

  101. Alejandra July 12, 2013 at 6:34 am #

    I would love this! It will get me out of a no-fun rut ive been in lately. This is excitement all around!

  102. Ian July 12, 2013 at 8:43 am #

    I’ll be there!

  103. Scott July 12, 2013 at 9:05 am #

    Sounds like a good time.

  104. MarthaBears July 12, 2013 at 10:57 am #

    Please give me a free ticket! I am going bonkers, as my filthy little adorable teddy bear has pooped all over the bathroom, and the rest of the kids are fighting over the limited supply of crack cocaine! Let me out!!!

  105. Laura July 12, 2013 at 11:38 am #

    I would love to be a part of this run! and I will get all my friends to come as well…glow this city! i love portland!

  106. Monte July 13, 2013 at 5:23 am #

    Yes! I haven’t been to an event in a while, and I’ve never been to Refuge Warehouse! This is awesome. I want to go because I am a electro/house fan and I have been doing more homework than anything this summer. I love late night walks in Portland, neon lights and BASS!

    Thanks PDX Pipeline!

  107. Barbara Richardson July 13, 2013 at 11:18 am #

    This sounds like a blast!! My boyfriend and I have been wanting to something like this for a while, neon, dancing and running is right up our alley!!

  108. Elyse July 13, 2013 at 11:35 am #

    I love to run and neon stuff is awesome! I haven’t been to the Refuge Warehouse and Night club and it sounds like a fun place to dance the night away! Pick me!!

  109. Collin July 13, 2013 at 2:25 pm #

    Would be awesome to go as I am going to the electric run portland tonight!!! Its quite expensive and winning these would insure I wiil go.


  110. Tuesday July 14, 2013 at 7:31 pm #

    I’d love to attend because 1) Neon is amazing, 2) Running is incredible, 3) Dancing releases stress (but is also fun!) 4) It would be new, exciting, and unbelievable!

  111. Zach Paredes July 16, 2013 at 4:37 pm #

    Oh Good Everyone! Fun!!!

  112. Joe July 18, 2013 at 2:10 pm #

    You can Glow if you want to
    But leave your friends behind
    Because your friends don’t glow
    And if they don’t glow
    They’re no friends of mine.

  113. Christina Archambault July 18, 2013 at 2:47 pm #

    This would be an amazing event!! Fun way to get me ready for my 1/2 marathon!

  114. Cassi July 20, 2013 at 4:45 pm #

    It would be a great way to celebrate my one year anniversary!

  115. Audrey August 8, 2013 at 2:25 pm #

    I’d like to get my “glow” on and be part of your race! I will walk very fast but my daughter is a runner and she will go also. I will be in Portland visiting my daughter this weekend so it would be great to do a “family glow” ;)

  116. seth francis August 8, 2013 at 3:24 pm #

    I promise lots of neon clothing and ridiculousness, john travolta style strutting and ass sticking-out, dancing like its 1985, yelling, sweating, and all along praising “thank you PDX Pipeline!”
    I can be your glowing neon ambassador to awesomeness if you just give me a chance :)

  117. Becky Torres August 14, 2013 at 9:24 am #

    I am a new runner and this would be so fun to participate in. Please pick me to join the fun.

  118. Teresa Solano August 14, 2013 at 9:48 am #

    I would love to do this as I am just starting to get active again after much down time. This would be the perfect incentive to get myself moving again, especially knowing that I will be guaranteed a healthy “glow” by participating. Pick me, pick me!

  119. Taba LuedtkePhillips August 14, 2013 at 12:05 pm #

    I love dressing in bright colors, and I love running, and I love it here in portland.

  120. Carson August 15, 2013 at 1:51 am #

    Because music and dancing are…
