United Way of Marion County host second annual Reindeer Run 5K event


Runners took over Morris Park in Fairmont, as the United Way of Marion County will host the second annual Reindeer Run 5K, for the Celebration of Lights event.

Attendees can enjoy the brisk winter night while running past more than 420 light displays.

“Last year we had 25 people come and run through the lights and so we are thrilled that we have over 75 pre registered this year and it’s a 5k that takes place in the lights. So, you don’t usually get to see the lights that close. It’s a great opportunity for folks to come out,  be part of a 5k and get to see the lights right up close,” said Brett White, director of United Way.

The 5k through the Celebration of Lights will take place from 6 to 8 p.m on Thursday, November 29.
