About the event:

The Northern Lights Kettle Run is considered one of Kansas City’s most beautiful running events as those running and walking experience the holiday lights. Oversized crowns are extended over the intersections with a 50 foot Christmas tree in the Town Square.

This run is a great place to bring your cell phone along and take some selfies to share on our event Facebook. Awards for the winner of each age/gender category and the overall best time winner will receive a gift certificate for some great restaurants. Every Northern Lights runner/walker will receive a participant’s medallion.

A Bright Lights Kid’s Run will take place at 5:30 PM with every participating child to receive a participation ribbon. This is a no cost event. The kid’s run will take place in front of The Grove on Dixson Avenue.

6:00 PM will be the lighting ceremony at Zona Rosa. This is always an exciting event with music and the arrival of the holiday Fairy Princess, Santa Claus, and Captain Kettle.

The Northern Lights Kettle Run registration and packet pickup will take place inside of The Grove on Friday, November 18th from 3:00-6:00 PM and on Saturday, November 19th from 3:00-6:45 PM. Online registration may be done at
