Event Description

Join us for a running tour of Winding Brook Park's brilliant display of holiday lights. Winding Brook Park's residents create beautiful light displays each year and take donations for area charities. We are suggesting a $5 donation per runner this year, and Fleet Feet Mishawaka will match the funds raised to double the impact our runners have on our community. Things all participants should consider: -Registration is required for this event. We will be parking and having check-in at the Walt Disney Elementary School 4015 Filbert Rd, Mishawaka, IN 46545. - Participants are required to check in upon arrival. Participants will receive a safety light or reflective band that they will be required to wear for the duration of the event at check-in for safety and visibility out on the route. -  The run will end where it started to allow participants to cross safely at the traffic light back to their vehicles. - Volunteers will be on the route to help guide you. - The lights are pretty bright, but be sure to bring a light source like a headlamp or knuckle lights. - Christmas Light necklaces and other festive wear are 100% encouraged! We get some great pictures with everyone all lit up. - Strollers are welcome as long as kiddos stay in them. - We chose a time that isn't as popular with cars, but they are still present. The light traffic is one way only if they follow the route. We will be running with traffic most of the time, but may also find ourselves running against traffic in some areas. - Leave the dogs at home, it's too dark and chaotic for our furry friends. -If you are not feeling well, please stay home! This protects the rest of the participants and our awesome volunteers.

**NEW THIS YEAR** Teddy Bear Trot! In addition to your cash donations, we encourage everyone to bring a stuffed teddy bear, which will be provided to a local Non-profit to give kids an extra hug this holiday season.
