Registration Opens 10/1 for Run Under the Lights!

The Montgomery County Road Runners Club, in partnership with the City of Gaithersburg, proudly presents our annual 5K run/walk through the City of Gaithersburg’s “Winter Lights Festival” in Seneca Creek State Park on November 19, 2016. This special event provides a very rare opportunity for you to witness, up close and personal, more than 380 illuminated vignettes and 65 animated displays of the Lights Festival outside of your vehicle.  The event will be timed for those who wish to race, however walkers are also welcome to participate.


The 2015 event sold out in LESS THAN 24 HOURS, so don’t delay!

There will be a 850 participant limit (runners + walkers) due to parking limitations, no exceptions!!!  If the race sells out, we cannot accommodate any special requests, pleas or circumstances.

Registration is $35 for participants ages 15 years old & younger and $40 for all other participants.

When registering for the run, you will have the option to purchase (for additional cost) long & sleeved tech shirts and a half-zip! We have a newly designed logo this year & kids sizes available! We will only take pre-orders and they will be available for pickup only, at packet pickup Friday or at the run on Saturday. Please see our website for more information.

PS – If you can’t run in the race, we need lots of volunteers!  Sign up early for your favorite volunteer spots!

We hope to see you there!
