I've closed the RSVPs as the race hit the 500 person limit awhile back. If you are registered thru imathlete already, let me know via message, and I will add you to the list of attendees. This will be the first time I'm running the Christmas lights thru the gardens and am looking forward to it!

Sprint through the Garden while enjoying the Galaxy of Lights displays blinking in front of you!
