Fort 4Fitness Fantasy of Lights 5K
November 19, 2016

New for 2016! In the evening darkness on Saturday, November 19, 2016, runners and walkers of all ages will gather at Franke Park for the inaugural Fort4Fitness Fantasy of Lights 5K. Just prior to the 6:30pm start, the 5K course will illuminated by  the 'first lighting' of over 75 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, healthy snacks and a Fort4Fitness Fantasy of Lights 5K long sleeve t-shity that will commemorate the run.

The 3.1 mile course will wind through the enchanting Fantasy of Lights light displays. Participants get the opportunity to run through one of Fort Wayne's greatest holiday traditions before it opens for the season!
