2. Skechers Blacklight Run

Need to burn off extra calories from all that beer drinking? The Skechers Blacklight Run will have you running (or walking) through several blacklight zones, while doused in UV Neon Glow Powder. The run is not a competitive one, so don’t worry about having to train seriously for it – just round up your best buds, throw on some old gym clothes and have a colourful (both literally and figuratively speaking) night out. DJ Automatic (USA) will also be spinning at the main stage, so save some energy for the after party.

Date: 29 October 2016

Time: Check in starts at 5.30pm.

Venue: Sentosa, Palawan Green

Admission: From $95. Register here.
