PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

The McCracken County High School Running Booster Club is now accepting sponsorships and registrations for a one-of-a-kind 5K and Kid K.

The Running Booster Club is excited to announce Yule Light Up The Night 5K and one-mile Kid K, in cooperation with Paducah Parks Services and Paducah Power System.

The run will be under the Christmas lights at Noble Park, Friday, Dec. 2 at 7 p.m.

In order to allow the race to take place, the Paducah Power System has graciously agreed to close the park to traffic for the night.

All participants are asked to bring a canned good for PPS’s Christmas in the Park food drive.

Registrations will be accepted beginning at 5 p.m. at Shelter 16 in Noble Park on the day of the race.

Early registration is encouraged because only those pre-registering will receive an event t-shirt with a limited number being available the day of the race on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The Kid K registration fee for children 12 and under is $20 in advance and $24 on the day of the race.

The 5K registration fee is $25 and $30 the day of the race.

Kids 12 and under running the 5K will have to pay full price for registration.

Wednesday, Nov. 23 is the deadline for early registration.
