Everyone's favorite holiday-themed fun run is taking on a new format to keep the tradition alive while also supporting the safety of our participants. The 2020 CarMax Tacky Light Run will happen on multiple 'Official Courses' in Chesterfield County! With more than one course to choose from, & the option to participate virtually, this multi-night event means you can run or walk when you please. Walton Park & the surrounding areas are going all out, so you better come dressed to impress in your tacky best! Sweater, costumes, & lights are encouraged—especially so you can make sure you're safe & visible to all! Everyone will receive a long-sleeved shirt,
and the option to add a tacky ornament onto your registration to keep that yearly ornament collection going strong (We have sold out of Tacky Light Run Ornaments). Let’s show ‘em that you can’t hold tacky down!
Please note: Add on items including glow kits, lights,
a tacky ornament – SOLD OUT, and other holiday-themed merchandise will be offered for additional fees.
When it comes to the CarMax Tacky Light Run, it doesn't matter who's the fastest...we just want to see who has the most holiday spirit! So dig out your grandmother's favorite holiday sweater, charge those battery packs, and buy all the garland you can afford, because the competition for these award categories is as serious as Santa!
If you would like to participate in the costume contest, submit a photo here or tag @SportsBackers with #nevertootacky on Facebook or Instagram.
