Review of The Neon Run – San Diego by

Posted by: on April, 15 2013

They did not honor the wave times that you signed up for at registration. My chosen wave time way 7:30pm but since it was a free for all, I didn’t get to cross the start until 8:45pm. This was only a tad over 2 miles. Not a true 5K. The “washable water based paint” that will come out of your clothes was in fact just plain old paint. It did not come out even a little bit and still has a faint tint in part of my hair after 6 washes. There was no beer garden as originally promised at registration. They even deny that they ever said there would be one! The after party was a DJ with dancing girls that needed to work on their beer guts. Not at all the life changing event they speak to on the website.

Worst run I have ever done, and I do a lot of these!
