Light the Way 5k Registration Open | Around The Town


The Natchitoches Area Chamber of Commerce is now accepting runners and walkers for the inaugural Light the Way 5k and Fun Run, a nighttime race under the Christmas lights of historic downtown Natchitoches. The race will take place on Friday, December 13, at 5:30 pm, beginning and ending in front of the riverbank stage. In addition to the 5k, there will be a one-mile fun run for those who just wish to walk and enjoy the lights with their friends. Awards will be given to winners in each age bracket and to those with the most Christmas spirit. Race participants are encouraged to wear Christmas themed attire, costumes, or ugly Christmas sweaters. Attendees will receive swag bags and race t-shirts with their registration.
