The highly anticipated fun run and party arrived in Bangkok on 17 June 2017. More than 4,000 Glow Runners from all walks of life flocked to Makkasan Airport Rail Link Station for the Skechers Blacklight Run Thailand 2017.
Touted as the brightest 5km on the planet and Thailand’s most instagrammable event, the 5km run route around Makkasan Airport Rail Link Station took runners through three Blacklight Run ZonesTM where everyone was showered in green, pink and orange non-toxic UV Neon Glow Powder. Blacklight RunTM UV Glow Powder is all 100% natural, non-toxic, and glows under our high beam blacklights in all Blacklight Run ZonesTM.
At the end of the run, Glow Runners headed to the Skechers Blacklight Run After PartyTM where they were entertained by DJ Kennth G, who flew in from Amsterdam to headline the event, and Thailand’s very own DJ Lady Punch.
The Foam Wall, a first for Thailand, was a big hit among the participants. Meanwhile, the Celebration Glow Throws kept the party going late throughout the night. To top it off, the K-Boy crew performed on the Main Stage.
Elvin Ting, Managing Director of organiser Orange Room Pte Ltd. said,
We launched Blacklight RunTM into Asia last year in Singapore and then brought the event to Thailand. Working closely with Skechers, our sponsors and the venue, we’re excited to see so many people take part in the first edition. Skechers Blacklight RunTM is the largest nighttime 5km in the world, and it’s a fun way to stay healthy with friends and family.
Headline sponsor of the Blacklight RunTM events in Asia, Mr. Vincent Leung, President, Skechers Southeast Asia remarked,
This was the first time Skechers Blacklight RunTM has been held in Thailand and the turnout and feedback has been exceptional. We are delighted and honoured to have supported such a great event, an event that promotes a healthy lifestyle in a fun way, and look forward to working with Orange Room and the Blacklight RunTM franchise on more events in the future.
From children to adults and seniors, everyone had a great time in the 2017 Skechers Blacklight RunTM Thailand, making it a huge success.
