2018 Lantern Run Guide (Clickable PDF)

Run a 5K, 10K, or Half-Marathon through a beautifully designed course.
A smaller, more private setting. We mail all items directly to you for your group to participate on your own time and pace.
A coordinator will normally be present at the event unless there were only a handful of sign-ups in your City. In that case, we will try again in the Spring and when there are enough participants, we will bring out a timer and coordinator. So keep your bib!
