6 PM - CarMax Tacky Light Run begins


Midlothian Mines Park
Midlothian, VA

This 6k course shows off Midlothian’s best display of tacky lights—you just wait! You’ll see dozens of homes with over-the-top tacky lights in the Walton Park neighborhood, including the famous Dawnridge Ct. Run (or walk) with thousands of other nice-listers and find out the true meaning of holiday spirit. Make sure to bring your smartphones because you’ll be snapping tons of photos while you’re out there… Even shameless selfies. Don’t worry, we won’t judge. So dust off your ugliest holiday sweater, find anything you can that lights up or glows, hang your stockings by the chimney with care, and get your milk and cookies ready because Santa is coming early this year!
