The Bright Nights 5K Road Race has been postponed until Tuesday, November 27 at 6:30 p.m. due to the heavy rain expected on Monday.
Check in begins at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the Bright Nights Storage and Maintenance Facility.
According to the Spirit of Springfield, this year’s run sold out in under an hour and there is a waitlist of more than 300 runners. More than 200 participants are believed to be new to the 5K race this year.
“It is fun to see the colorful and creative outfits that runners wear,” said Judy Matt, Spirit of Springfield President. “It’s not about how well you did in the race, it is whether or not you got in and what you wore.”
The Spirit of Springfield said race results will be posted on coolrunning.com and newenglandruns.com.
