Welcome to Run Under the Lights!

winter lights cropped2The Montgomery County Road Runners Club, in partnership with the City of Gaithersburg, Maryland, invites runners and walkers to participate in a 5K run/walk through the City of Gaithersburg’s “Winter Lights Festival” in Seneca Creek State Park on November 22, 2014.

Winter Lights features more than 380 illuminated vignettes and 65 animated displays. Theme areas include Winter Woods, Teddy Bear Land, Victorian Village, North Pole, Toyland, and Penguin Cove.
Given that this is a mostly FUN event, strollers will be permitted but must start in the back (no charge for the strollee).  Children must stay in the stroller at all times. Registration is $30 for both the chip-timed race and the walk until November 7. November 8 through race day, registration will be $35.

When registering for the run you can purchase a wonderful Technical shirt for $15.00, Sweatshirt for $16.00 or Hoodie for $20.00.  We will only take preorders and they must be picked up from packet pickup Friday or at the run on Saturday.

The event will be timed for those who wish race, however walkers are also welcome.

There will be a 800 participant (runners + walkers) maximum due to available parking at the park. The race has sold out within 10 days of opening for the past several years,  DO NOT delay in registering!!
