Light the Way 5k Registration Now Open

The Natchitoches Area Chamber of Commerce is now accepting runners and walkers for Light the Way 5k and Fun Run, a nighttime race under the Christmas lights of historic downtown Natchitoches. The race will take place on Sunday, December 12, at 7:05 pm, beginning and ending in front of the riverbank stage. Registration and packet pick-up will begin at 4:00 PM. 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 that will take place at 6:45 PM. 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.
