New event for 2016! In the evening darkness on Saturday, November 19, 2016, several hundred runners and walkers will gather at Franke Park for the inaugural Fort4Fitness Fantasy of Lights 5K. At 6:00 pm, the 5K course will be illuminated by the 'first lighting' of 85 larger-than-life brilliant, animated light displays depicting holiday scenes (as part of Blue Jacket Inc.'s Fantasy of Lights display) including the new "Winter Runners" Fort4Fitness display. Runners and walkers will enjoy hot chocolate, snacks and a Fort4Fitness Fantasy of Lights 5K long-sleeve t-shirt that will commemorate the run. 

*No shirt or timing for the Free-Kids Age 5 & Under option. If a shirt and timing is desired, please register child in the Kids 17 & Under registration option.

The Course

The 3.1 mile course will wind through the enchanting Fantasy of Lights light displays. Participants get the opportunity to run or walk through one of Fort Wayne's greatest holiday traditions before it opens for the season. The course will consist of at least one lap through the lights (on pavement) and includes a .4 mile section on gravel through the old drive-in theater loop southwest of the Foellinger Theatre parking lot. Course map is TBD and will be released momentarily.
