What better way to start the Holidays than with a chance to run through a Holiday Light Display! For 2020, there will be 200,000 more lights being put up and at least a dozen more displays compared to last year!
We have the entire Veteran's Memorial Park in Canton, so there's no traffic beeping and making you run faster. You can race through, do a leisurely jog, or walk the 5K course, starting at 6 PM. We'll have a staggered start for social distancing. We'll also have chip timing, great race shirts, and 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 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!
