    WHAT IS LIGHT UP THE CORNERS?

    A glowing, flashing, blinking, shining, night time running party and fundraiser in one! This event is sure to Light Up The (Peachtree) Corners AND Light Up A Life! Proceeds from the event go to benefit at-risk children and families in our community who are struggling by giving them the chance to participate in life-enhancing programs and activities at the Fowler YMCA.

    IT'S ALL ABOUT THE FUN!

    The two events, the 4 Mile Run and 1k (6/10th of a mile) Twilight Trot, will each be a one-of-a-kind night time experience that is less about how fast you run or walk and more about much fun you have! The course will be lined with blinking lights to illuminate the way and participants will be given glow bling to light up the course as you run/walk. There will be contests for the "glowiest" men, women, boys, girls, and teams. So, strap on as much glow bling as you can find and come light up the course with your friends and family! Whether you are a fast runner, a weekend jogger, or a casual walker you are invited to be a part of this exciting LIGHT UP THE CORNERS event.  Strollers welcome, but for safety purposes, must start at the back of the pack.

    PACE GROUPS:  Pace groups will be set up at the starting line.  Participants will be encouraged to start in the pace group that most closely matches expected average pace for the 4-mile run.

    COVID AWARENESS:  We are offering a virtual race option this year for those who wish to support this event but not run it on race night, or not run it at all.   Should you wish to run on your own, there will be an option for entering your virtual race run time between August 1st and August 14th, however virtual run times will not qualify for overall or age group awards.  Adaptations, (i.e., staggered starts) to race start and party area will be in keeping with state and CDC guidelines at race time.

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.
