With over four million Christmas lights Dollywood is a site to behold!
Dollywood Light The Way 5K is scheduled for Friday November 15, 2019 at Dollywood. This annual event is celebrating its seventh year running. The race course is truly unique boasting over four million beautiful Christmas lights throughout America’s favorite theme park. This is the first year the race holds the honor of being a certified 5K so you don’t want to miss it!
Runners and walkers alike are welcome to participate in the Light The Way 5K. This event benefits not only one, but two great causes – Share It Forward and Keep Sevier Beautiful.
The twinkling lights of Dollywood will be on full display at the 11:39 p.m. start time and through out the race. There is limited space available for participants so don’t delay signing up or you may miss your chance to tour the park in this event.
“My family and I have run the Light The Way 5K several times and love it! We come all the way from Alabama and there is no better way to enjoy this beautiful park,” said Mary Sanders.
Be aware that runners will not be allowed to push strollers in the race so plan accordingly and use a child carrier instead. Pets are not allowed in the race but you can celebrate with your furry friend later.
Race packet pick up will be at Dolly’s Splash Country. Friday packet pick up will close at 10 p.m. so don’t be late!
If you have never experienced Dollywood at night this is the perfect opportunity to avoid some of the crowds and really enjoy it!
