Please join us in celebrating our 10th Annual Light Up The Night 5k. Run, walk and GLOW through downtown Winter Haven to support our local community. We will have awards and an after-party in The Packing House at Grove Roots Brewery after the race. Back by popular demand, we will have Hunter Smith performing during our after-party! There will be plenty of food trucks too! 

Event details and schedule

Race Time: 7:00 PM

We will begin outside of the BB&T Bank on Magnolia Ave. The race winds through Magnolia Park and South Central Park, through the west side of Central Park, then out past Lake Silver on the trail, turning around just before Ave S. Runners will return along the route and retrace their steps through downtown to conclude at the BB&T parking lot.

Bring glow-in-the-dark gear, flashlights, and any other lighted accessories. The after-party will be inside the Packing House at Grove Roots Brewery, where the awards ceremony will be held.
