Christmas Light Run

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Clarksville Parks & Recreation will host its fourth-annual Christmas Light Run presented by Fleet Feet Clarksville from 4:30 - 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10 at McGregor Park.

Participants of both the 5K and 1-mile fun run can experience Christmas on the Cumberland in a new way as the course takes them through over 1 million dazzling lights. Proceeds from the event will go towards the purchase of new light displays for future holiday seasons.

This year’s 5K route is new and will take runners along the Cumberland and Red Rivers.

A long-sleeved commemorative race t-shirt, light-up necklace, and a finisher medal are included with every 5K registration. 1-mile fun run participants will receive a finisher medal and light-up necklace. Participants must register by Thursday, Nov. 10 to guarantee a race t-shirt and medal. 

Pre-registration is required. Registration is open now and closes Nov. 28, or until capacity is reached.

Other sponsors of the event include CDE Lightband and GEICO Insurance.
