Unique 5K Run/Walk through Downtown Wheaton after sunset

Race through luminary lanes and end with a street fest of music, carnival rides, beer garden and food trucks at the Light the Torch 5K Night Run!

Presented in partnership by the Wheaton Park District and FT Cares Foundation, this 5K run/walk is a unique race through downtown Wheaton after sunset. Race starts at 6:30P.

If this run wasn’t flashy enough, our glow giveaways should do the trick. Got your own light-up necklaces, bracelets, rings, or headbands? What about a pair of those awesome shoes that change colors with each step you take? Come decked out! The more glow, the better.

This is a timed race and runner bibs are chipped. Overall winners are determined by chip time. All participants will receive a race shirt and finisher’s medal.
