Event Details

This will be the 6th annual Running of the Balls.

This night run/walk on a 5K(ish) course through Sunset Hills takes participants through the largest neighborhood light display in the United States. Started years ago, the residents of this neighborhood decorate their 50-foot tall trees with enormous "Lighted Christmas Balls."

Now the third largest race in Greensboro, its 3,500 runners annually raise more than $50,000 for Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC. Recognized by Runners World as an internationally unique event, the race draws participants from around the world through allowing them to experience the Lighted Christmas Balls of Sunset Hills at night. Adding to the ambiance of the race, the course is filled has 7 stages of music, homeowners enjoying the event with friends caroling by campfire and hot chocolate and cookies in the Start/Finish area.

The 3,500 person field is regularly sold out within one month of registration opening and is capped to keep the feel of a cozy community event. Once registration is filled, only residents of Sunset Hills and event sponsors will be able to continue to register.
