Area runners and walkers are invited to “turn the lights on” for One Vision’s Festival of Trees celebration at the 9th Annual Lights On 5K Run/Walk.

LIGHTS ON 5K
Beginning at the One Vision’s Main Campus in Clear Lake at 5:30pm, runners will follow streets through the One Vision neighborhood in northwest Clear Lake. Runners/walkers are encouraged to wear headlamps to be clearly seen.
KIDS FUN RUN
Kids have a chance to shine their own lights as they run on the north drive of main campus with Santa and Mrs. Clause. The race will start at 5:45pm after the 5k begins. Parents are welcome and encouraged to run or walk with their kids or take those amazing photos as they cross the finish line.

The first 125 people to register online will also receive an exclusive holiday gift and flashing clip light for the race. After November 2, 2021, registration cost increases to $30 per person 5k and a t-shirt is not guaranteed. T-shirts and gifts will be distributed based on size availability and registration date! So don’t delay in registering.
Parents and guardians have the opportunity to register their children in the Kid’s Fun Run for a reduced price. The Fun Run Registrants will NOT receive a race t-shirt, holiday gift, or flashing light. They WILL receive a commemorative finishing medal.
