Presented in conjunction with the Christmas in Historic Plymouth tree lighting on Friday night, December 6.
When: Friday, December 7.
Where: Runners will proceed down Main Street in Plymouth behind Santa, and when he turns on the tree lights, the runners will go!! It will be dark, but the course will be well lit for sure. View the course map here.
Why: Well, if you really need more reasons, any participants registered by the early deadline (date TBA) will be guaranteed shirts and glow bracelets!
Registration is limited to 1,000. Participants are also REQUIRED to have a flashlight or headlamp. Also, in partnership with the Boston Bruins Foundation proceeds will go to Cape Cod Toys for Tots and will help to keep the tree lighting going in future years!
Registration Info: ONLINE REGISTRATION will open closer to the race date. Check back here, or watch our facebook and newsletters for more info.
SHIRTS: Shirts are available for all participants registered on or before the early registration date (TBA).
IMPORTANT! Please be sure to bring a headlamp and/or flashlight with you to the race. The Plymouth Police have asked that all participants be illuminated with a light. If you have reflective clothing, please wear that as well.
There are several parking options available. All parking information can be found on the website: www.parkplymouth.com. Please remember it will be crowded in the area so leave time to park and walk to the start. The area we have for the race participants is on Main Street Extension near the Post Office. This is where we will wait for the parade to start before the race begins.
Please remember that the race is in conjunction with the yearly Christmas in Historic Plymouth event. We will be following the parade and Santa down Main Street at 6:00 pm. We will stop at the tree, wait for Santa to turn on the lights, then continue walking up to the starting line which is at Brewster Street.
There is 1 waterstop on the course at approximately the ½ way point.
The roads are open to traffic. If you are running with a stroller please plan to start at the back. We ask that you leave dogs/animals at home as they will not be allowed to run with you on the course. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to participate with a service animal.
Post Race Party: Immediately following the Winter Lights 5K on December 6, Bayside Runner and the Boston Bruins Foundation will host a 21+ VIP PARTY. Location and times to be announced closer to the date of the race.
VIP Entry: Just bring your race number & an unwrapped gift for TOYS FOR TOTS to get you in!!
