Run Under the Lights 2021 ($)

November 20, 2021 @ 6:15 pm - 8:00 pm

REGISTRATION IS FULL – We will see you in 2022!

Race Overview: 

The City of Gaithersburg, in partnership with the Montgomery County Road Runners Club, invites all runners and walkers to participate in a 5K Run/Walk in the magical setting of Gaithersburg’s Winter Lights Festival at Seneca Creek State Park. Winter Lights features more than 380 illuminated vignettes and 65 animated displays. Runners and walkers will utilize the roads through the Park during the race. Roads will be closed to traffic except for Emergency Vehicles and vehicles required for race management.

*** Please note:  Due to delays and staffing shortages as a result of COVID-19, participants may experience some outages in various light displays.  By registering for this event, you acknowledge this possibility and understand that refunds will not be processed due to light display outages.

During the Race:

While masks are no longer required, please be sensitive to those around you whose comfort level or health situation may be different than yours, especially to our younger participants who are not yet able to be vaccinated.

As a condition of our race permits, social distancing is still required.  We suggest all participants keep a mask with you for use any time social distancing cannot be achieved.

Health & Wellness:

Now more than ever, please pay close attention to your health prior to attending this event.  If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or another person with COVID-19, please stay home.  If you have cold symptoms, a mild fever, or just “don’t feel well,” we ask that you please stay home. All participants are subject to temperature checks at the discretion of our race staff.


MCRRC is a volunteer organization and our events are fully staffed by the hard work of our volunteers.  Without them, our races wouldn’t be possible. Volunteers are needed for this event.   Signup to volunteer today!
