Event Details

Get ready to light up the night with holiday cheer! Held the second Saturday of December each year, The Deck the Heels 5k Night Run is the perfect way to kick off the festive season. Whether you're a seasoned runner or just starting out, this event is open to everyone.

The course winds through the city streets, past beautifully decorated homes and twinkling holiday lights. Runners are encouraged to dress up in their most festive attire, with a prize awarded for the best outfit.

After the race, stick around for a post-run a holiday extravaganza with Santa, food, hot chocolate, music, and more! It's a great opportunity to catch up with friends and make new ones, all while soaking up the holiday atmosphere.

Glow-in-the-Dark accessories will be available at packet pickup.  We encourage runners to "Deck" themselves out for this festive Christmas event.
