The Snowman Stampede: Light Up the Night 5k


Light shows that dazzle with miles of twinkling scenes through area parks are some of the most anticipated delights of the holiday season. And this year you can enjoy one in a whole new way: The first ever Snowman Stampede: Light Up the Night 5k! On December 7, all ages are invited to run or walk through the Festival of Lights at Bull Run Regional Park in Centreville, VA — a brilliant family-friendly kick off to the holiday season.

There will be a 5k race through the light show starting at 5:30pm as well as a one-mile dash for all ages at 4:30pm. The race will go through the entire show and end at a holiday village filled with carolers, hot chocolate, hayrides, and more — participants are highly encouraged to not only run the race, but to stay afterwards for the holiday festivities, too! Children and adults of all ages will enjoy this unique experience.
