Happy New Year!
In the spirit of the holiday season, Running of the Lights collects food for Second Harvest Food Bank. All participants are asked to bring at least 3 canned goods. A portion of your entry fee also goes to this great cause. You can learn more about them by visiting them online.
Running of Lights is a race like no other. It started as an avenue to provide family with a way to ring in the New Year in a healthy way with friends and family. The course winds through the Tanglewood Festival of Lights at the stroke of midnight. Participants can stroll through the Christmas wonderland at whatever pace they choose, and then relish in hot chocolate at the finish line. Start the New Year off on a healthy note!
The race starts at the stroke of midnight. We will celebrate the New Year with a Live Feed to New York’s Time Square to count down the New Year and start the race!
All participants in the 5.5K will receive Long Sleeve T-shirts, Fun Run participants will have the option to buy a shirt during registration. If you register on site and we have run out of shirts, then we will place an additional order and mail a shirt to you.
