The neon is packed away, the holiday lights are dimmed and the glow gear has faded but the memories linger. The second annual Redlands Chamber Night Light Run welcomed hundreds of runners, walkers, and meanderers on Saturday, December 27th post holiday food fest! The music pounding the beat, at the Redlands Mall and the lights dazzled. As the crowd swelled the DJ sounded the alert and the announcer sent the runners off onto the streets of Redlands. A mass of undulating, glowing runners, walkers, strollers and revelers headed out into the darkness. It wasn’t long before the first and fastest athletes returned and then in their own time the rest showed up thrilling us with stories of night time running.
The Redlands Chamber Night Light Run, could not have been possible without the generous support of race sponsors, Barich & Associates Insurance, Beaver Medical Clinic, Southern California Edison, Arthur Murray’s Dance Studio, Juice it Up, Redlands Fitness Training, Redlands Blueprint & Commercial Printing and JAM Sportswear, what a team!!
The volunteers that secured the streets making the adventure safe are to be thanked as well, without them the course would not have been open and accessible. Special thanks to the Officer Ken Wright and his team that kept the street closure to a minimum.
It was another bright and shiny event that left a sparkling impression, hats off to everyone !!!
