Welcome to the registration page for MCRRC's 2019 Run Under the Lights!

The City of Gaithersburg, in partnership with the Montgomery County Road Runners Club, invites all runners and walkers to participate in a 5K Run/Walk in the magical setting of Gaithersburg’s Winter Lights Festival at Seneca Creek State Park. Winter Lights features more than 380 illuminated vignettes and 65 animated displays. Runners and walkers will utilize the roads through the Park during the race. Roads will be closed to traffic except for Emergency Vehicles and vehicles required for race management.

Age-Based Discounts

Once again, the race will offer a $5 discount for participants who will be ages 15 & under on race day. There is no separate registration category this year - the discount will be given upon registering.

Participants in Strollers!

As this is a family-friendly event, our littlest participants in strollers are more than welcome. Please note that children in strollers do not need to register; however, they will NOT be assigned a bib & they MUST REMAIN IN THEIR STROLLER for the duration of the race.  Our young participants who will not ride in a stroller, must register for the 5K race.

For the safety and enjoyment of all of our participants, those wishing to walk the race or push a stroller must start in the very back. We appreciate your cooperation!

Refunds or Transfers

Registration fees for this event are NON-REFUNDABLE, regardless of the reason.  No exceptions, please.

Should you be unable to participate in the event, you are welcome to find another participant to take your place.  Transfers will only be accepted through noon on Friday, November 15th, as after this time our staff begins to prepare the bibs.  Please do not request a transfer after noon on the 15th.

Additionally, please do not allow someone else to run using your bib, or accept another person's bib for yourself.  Should the runner require medical attention, we will be unable to identify them or their emergency contacts.  Please, do not put our race staff in this position -- we thank you for your attention.
