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.

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.
