As always our 5K winds through 3.1 miles of towering Christmas light displays as part of the ‘Magical Nights of Lights' at Margaritaville at Lanier Islands in Buford, GA.  This event is held prior to the vehicle tours of the lights, and great family time at the Licence to Chill Snow Island starting on Nov 17th.  Each night the 5K Walk/Run starts at 5:45pm which is right at dusk. Runners and walkers alike will enjoy seeing the light displays, Christmas music playing on the course, and don't forget the Santa Claus bobble head dolls for our overall and age group awards.  All those who register prior to Nov 1 will receive a race tee and cool finishers medal.  Support the Marine Corps Toys for Tots by bringing a toy or check valued at $10.00 or more for entry into our Marine Corps Toys for Tots RAFFLE held at each race.

Artwork for this year's finishers medal has been posted, and each registered participant will receive a finishers medal!
