The Run: The final run of the 2014 season will take place during the Lights in the Parkway!  Enjoy the lights by foot!  Together with the City of Allentown we are offering a 5K Run/Walk.  The course will start and end at the top of the hill.  More hilly than your typical Parkway run – let the beauty of the lights take your mind off the hills.  There are parts of the course that are a little dark but the whole course is on a gravel or paved path.  If you have concerns, please plan on bringing your own light source. Everyone is welcome to run/walk this event — our timing equipment stays in place for 1 hour after the start.

Prizes: The top male and female finisher will win custom race ornaments, top 25 men/women will receive a Lights in the Parkway 5K Ornament and everyone has a shot at the raffle prizes!  Must be present at awards ceremony to win. The awards ceremony will take place directly following the end of the race.

Series Points: No series Points – The 2014 Run Lehigh Valley Championship Prize will be awarded during the awards ceremony!


Other fun stuff: Enjoy the lights by foot.  Finish up the hill – quench your thirst with a water and then relax with some hot chocolate.  Professional photography available to take your photo running through the light arches!
