What better way to start the Holidays than with a chance to run through a Holiday Light Display! If you came out last year, you'll remember how AH-mazing these lights were! We will have a cap of 500 this year, so make sure to sign up early!
We have the entire Veteran's Memorial Park in Canton, so there won't be any traffic beeping to pressure you to run faster. You can race through, do a leisurely jog, or walk the 5K course, starting at 6 PM. We'll have chip timing, great race shirts, finisher medals & awards for the Overalls, Masters, Grand Masters, Senior Masters, and the Top three in all the usual five year age groups.
After the race, you may even hop in your car and drive through to enjoy the lights again with music!
If you're coming with family/friends, we ask that you try to carpool!
* Head lamp / light is suggested
