Frequently Asked Questions

Is this event timed?
No. This is a fun run and fundraiser. We will still be providing awards to the first male and first female across the finish line as our overall winners - since no timing is required to determine the winner.
Are pets allowed at the event?
No. For the safety and comfort of all participants, we ask that you leave your pets at home. Please note, service and companion animals are allowed under the American Disabilities Act. Although not required, we recommend you use a vest or harness that designates your animal to avoid confusion for our volunteers.
Are strollers allowed at Light It Up 5K?
Yes. We welcome families, but ask that strollers begin at the back of the field for everyone's safety.
Is the course wheelchair accessible?
Yes. The entire course is taking place on public roads.
