Veterans Memorial Park

Canton, GA  30115

2023 Details Coming Soon


Race Information

What better way to start the Holidays than with a chance to run through a Holiday Light Display!  If you came out last year, you'll remember how AH-mazing these lights were!  We are adding additional offsite parking, and running shuttles to be able to accommodate more participants this year, so come on out to see the beautiful display!

We have the entire Veteran's Memorial Park in Canton, so there won't be any traffic beeping to pressure you to run faster.  You can race through, do a leisurely jog, or walk the 5K course, starting at 6 PM.  We'll have chip timing, great race shirts, finisher medals & awards for the Overalls, Masters, Grand Masters, Senior Masters, and the Top three in all the usual five year age groups.

After the race, you may even hop in your car and drive through to enjoy the lights again with music!

If you're coming with family/friends, we ask that you try to carpool!

* Head lamp / light is suggested


This event is fundraising for Serv International.

Through in country partner churches we’re providing food, essential support, and other critical resources to refugees fleeing the war.
