VIEW ANOTHER EVENT
Start the New Year off on a healthy note! Join us for a night of fun and celebration that ends with a hot chocolate toast to the healthy New Year! This run course will be an experience of a lifetime. Runners will wind through the park at midnight and experience the Tanglewood Festival of Lights in a whole new way, on foot! This will be by far the most scenic run course in Christmas history. It will be a Christmas wonderland of lights and action. Don't miss it!
This unique event is like no other running event in the state of North Carolina. Never before has anyone had the opportunity to marvel at the Festival of Lights outside of their vehicle! Now participants can stroll through the Christmas wonderland at whatever pace they choose, and then relish in hot chocolate provided at the finish line.
Fun Run/Walk participants will NOT receive shirts. Shirts will be available for purchase at the event.
This event benefits Second Harvest Food Bank and Forsyth County and Tanglewood Park.
In honor of the holiday season this event will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank. Each participant will be required to bring at least 3 canned goods or non parishable food items to be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank.
The Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina was founded in 1981 and opened its doors in 1982 to address the growing needs of people seeking emergency food assistance in Northwest North Carolina. Since then, we have experienced dramatic growth in food distribution, operations and programming to better serve our more than 380 partner agencies - and the thousands of people who rely on the food they provide each year. To date, the Second Harvest Food Bank has distributed nearly 90 million pounds of food to non-profit agencies and churches that feed our hungry neighbors in 18 counties.
