Running of the Lights

Posted on 12/9/2013 by Rebecca Woodcock

Running of the Lights

Start the New Year off on a healthy note! Join us for a night of fun and celebration that ends with a hot chocolate toast to the healthy New Year! This run course is an experience of a lifetime. Runners wind through the park at midnight and experience the Tanglewood Festival of Lights in a whole new way, on foot! This is by far the most scenic run course in Christmas history. It is a Christmas wonderland of lights and action. Don’t miss it!

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!
