5 Great Reasons to Create a 2016 Trail of Lights Fun Run Team

Ah, the holidays! That special time of year where we bury our swimsuits and short shorts in the back of the closet and begin dreaming of pumpkin-flavored everything, with a side of turkey and stuffing. Yum!

You know what’s better than running sad and alone on a treadmill to burn those extra holiday calories? Gathering your nearest and dearest to join you in walking/running/crawling (depending on how much leftover stuffing you ate) the Trail of Lights 2016 Fun Run (Dec 3rd, 6:30-10pm)!

Here’s five great reasons to create a 2016 Trail of Lights Fun Run team:

1. Kick off the Holiday Season Together

The Trail of Lights has always been about community-building, whether it’s with your friends, co-workers or neighbors. So, grab your squad, Santa hats and running shoes and celebrate the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year together!

2. Win Prizes!

Get creative with your team and coordinate fun holiday-themed costumes! There’ll be prizes for Best Team Costume, Largest Team, & Most Holiday Team Spirit. Plus, when else are you going to see thousands of Santa’s, elves, and reindeer speed-walking through Zilker Park?

3. Bragging Rights

Show off how hilarious/athletic/creative your group is by sporting your team name on your Fun Run bibs (teams 10-25) and Fun Run t-shirts (teams 25 or more!). Not to mention, Fun Runners get a sneak peak into the Trail of Lights before it opens to the general public!

4. Holiday Photo Ops

Put down the selfie stick and strike a pose! All teams will get a photo by the Zilker Tree and Start Line from a professional photographer. Don’t forget to use our hashtag #austintrailoflights

5. Save Moolah!

Did you know that teams of ten or more save 10% on registration fees! Not to mention, there’s still Early Bird pricing.

So, don’t hesitate—register your team today!
