Do you know about the Redlands Chamber Night Light Run????

You’re probably asking yourself…”What the heck is a Night Light Run??? And why should I run in a Night Light Run… and what should I do to train for a Night Light Run…. And do I need to buy special gear for a Night Light Run….. Can my grandma run with me in the Night Light Run??????”

You will be emailed about 10 days prior to the race with information on dates and locations for the Packet Pick-up Party!!

Do I need to be “in the best shape of my life” runner to do this
OH NO!  There are plenty of other great 5ks out there to test speed and performance. This event is all fun, friends and lights. You can run, walk, crawl, skip, meander just make it back to the fabulous finish line where we’ll be waiting for you with a fabulous light show!

Is this a timed event?

Nope! This is not a race it’s an experience….take it all in… have fun with the lights, the sounds the fun….

Can I run with a jogging stroller and my kids?
On one condition…if you are prepared to be one of the hippest moms/dads on the planet!  As long as they are cute and like to have fun…all kiddos 6 and under can run with an adult FREE of charge and do not need to register! Decked out strollers are way cool… and decked out kids even better.

Can Dogs participate?

Sorry no dogs allowed. Sorry Charley !!!

Is there an age limit for younger runners?
No age limits:) If they can cover (running, jogging, walking, strolling) the 3 miles of the Night Light Run course, they can absolutely do the 5k! Remember though, as soon as they turn 7 they will need to register and have a race bib!

Is there a packet pick up for the event? How does all that work?
Yes.  The exact details will be posted on the official website and emailed to each registrant 7 days prior to the run.

Can someone else pick up my packet for me?
If you fill out a Pick-Up Waiver, someone else can bring your completed waiver and grab that packet to give to you.

Can spectators attend the pre/post-race Night Light Run party?
Absolutely.  You’ll want to celebrate with everyone you know and have them cheer you on as you twinkle over the finish line …that’s when the party starts!!!! Then have them join you as  you visit the downtown businesses after the party.

Are there refunds?
Unfortunately, we cannot issue refunds.  The logistics of setting up and planning the event make it impossible.  Just make sure you are good to go before signing up.  If for some reason you can’t make it to race day, at least come to the check in, pick up your gear, and say hi to us!

If I register early is there a fabulous discount?

You bet …you know what they say the early bird catches the worm…or in this case the cheapest deal and who doesn’t like to save money? You can spend your savings on fancy schmancy glow wear, tutus, tiara, neon socks, find it and wear it!!!!…. Register on line at and SAVE SAVE SAVE!!!

What if I have a really intelligent question that isn’t answered here?
Please email us at  and we will hook you up with an answer.  If your question is awesome enough, we might even publish it on the official Redlands Chamber Night Light Run FAQS page.

And let’s be honest, when was the last time you acted like a 12 year old? Unless you are now 13 years old, this was probably a long time ago. If you’re 13, you’re not our target demographic anyway. Don’t you have homework to do?
