Run Through The Lights

December 7, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Cost: $25

Event Navigation

Gazelle Sports and the Kalamazoo Area Runners are proud to host Run Through the Lights to benefit Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes. Join us for a festive fun run or walk through the holiday lights of downtown Kalamazoo! Run Through the Lights is an un-timed, non-competitive 2.4 mile run/walk and everyone is invited. Streets will be closed.

A FRIENDLY REMINDER – PLEASE NOTE: Bronson Park will be the race location and we will be down by the bandshell for 2017. We hope this will give people more space to mingle, and we will be able to visit Candy Cane Lane! All participants ARE REQUIRED to bring and wear lights and reflective gear! We love safe runners and walkers! This fun event is growing and to ensure your safety, we will have staggered starts for runners, walkers and anyone with strollers. We love your pets too – but for this year’s event, we ask that you leave them at home to keep everyone safe on this busy downtown night of crowds and fun in the lights! There will also be special contests with fabulous prizes to be won!

  • Best Holiday Costume
  • Most Family Members at the Event

Don’t miss the post-run events! Refreshments, snacks, and awesome door prizes!

Late Registration and Packet Pick up

You can also your packet on Thursday December 7th at Bronson Park starting at 4:45pm. If you have not registered, you may also register on site at this time.

Refunds/Transfers: Please note there will be no refunds or transfers for this event, including cancellation due to extreme weather conditions.

In the spirit of giving, we also ask that you bring a non-perishable or canned food item(s), which will be donated to the Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes. Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes is the largest food assistance provider in Kalamazoo County and provided nearly 160,000 food packages last year. Please bring food and/or monetary donations with you to the event to help feed hungry people in our community. You are also able to add a donation when registering online.

Representatives from the charity organization will be there to collect donations. Last year we gathered 908 lbs. of food for Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes, and we look to collect more for 2017. Please make a difference for your neighbors in need and help us reach our goal!

Help us work toward a hunger-free Kalamazoo County by donating food items on race night! We really are in need of the following items at this time of year:

  • Canned meat/fruit/vegetables
  • Canned soups
  • Canned stews

Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes is a registered 501(c)(3) organization and the largest provider of emergency food to hungry people in Kalamazoo County. Our vision is to work towards a hunger-free community. Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes will feed hungry people and engage our community in the fight to end hunger. Click Here for more information.
