About this event


What better way to start the Holidays than with a chance to run through a Holiday Light Display! If you came out in 2020, you'll remember how AH-mazing these lights were! There will be over 200,000 more lights being put up and at least a dozen more displays compared to 2019!

We have the entire Veteran's Memorial Park in Canton, so there's no 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, 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 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 lamps / light is suggested.
