  • Parking
    • We will have volunteers that will be assisting you with parking. We will fill up the Marshall Park parking lot first and overflow parking will move into Irvine Park parking lots.
    • Please listen to the volunteers.
    • You CANNOT park along Bridgewater Ave. You may be risking a ticket if you do.
  • Route
    • Both the 5K and 1 Mile routes can be found in the attached packet
    • There may be snow along the course and we urge that you use caution along these parts. Our parks staff will do their best to clear the route, but mother nature can’t be stopped.
    • 1 Mile participants: please start in the back of the pack and allow the 5k runners to start in front
  • Finish
    • When finishing the race, please listen to the instructions of the finish line volunteers.
    • The Oz Run will be at a water/snack table nearby.
    • We will be announcing the Top 2 Male and Top 2 Female runners near the finish line as they come in.
    • The park will open up at 5:00pm for people to drive/walk through and check out the wonderful decorations various community organizations volunteered to help put up as well as our hardworking park employees.


The 6th Annual Run for the Lights was a success! We had nearly 400 participants between the 5k and walk!
