Don’t miss the 2015 Run Through the Lights Fun Run hosted by Gazelle Sports and Kalamazoo Area Runners and benefiting Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes.


The event will be held at Gazelle Sports Kalamazoo on Thursday, December 3, 2015 at 6:00pm. There will be also be special contests with fabulous prizes to be won! Don’t miss the post-run events including refreshments, snacks and awesome door prizes.


IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:  All participants must wear lights and reflective gear. Safety is a top priority at this year’s event. We will also have staggered starts for runners, walkers and anyone with strollers. To keep everyone safe on this busy downtown night of crowds and fun in the lights, no pets are allowed.


Event is $30 for adults 13+ (includes tech shirt) and $15 for children 12 & under (includes tech shirt) for those who pre-register by noon on December 2nd.   Event is $15 for adults 13+ (no shirt) and free for children 12 & under (no shirt).  Late registration will be available at packet pickup on Wednesday, December 4th from 4 – 7pm and at the event.  A limited number of shirts may be available for purchase at the event.


In the spirit of giving, we also ask that you bring a non-perishable or canned food item(s), which will be donated to the Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes. Please bring food and/or monetary donations with you to the event. Representatives from the charity organization will be there to collect donations. Last year we gathered 914 lbs. of food for Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes and we are looking to collect more in 2015.  Please make a difference for your neighbors in need and help us reach our goal! Monetary donations will also be accepted online and at the event for Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes.

Volunteers still NEEDED!  

We are filling volunteer spots, but we still have plenty of space available.  We are currently in need of Course Marshals (over 18 years of age or serving with an adult).  If you aren’t running please consider volunteering or spread the word to family and friends that might be interested in helping out for an hour or two on Thursday night!
