Route for Christmas Lights Group Group Run – 21 December 2017

The inaugural Christmas Lights Group Run is on Thursday night 21 December 2017.

We’re meeting at Sun Deck in Merimbula prior, ready to set off at 8:30 PM.

For more info:


  • Those taking part in this activity do so at their own risk.
  • Please remember, this run is an un-timed group run/walk for fun, it is not a race.
  • There are two road crossing which are made twice at toward end of route, when participants cross Beach Street at Market Street end and cross Alice Street when travelling along Main Street.  Participants must slow down and take extra caution at these crossings, being sure to watch for and give way to cars.
  • Otherwise the route should be travelled entirely on the footpath
  • Participants are asked to keep left and give way to other path users.


The 5km route has been selected so that our happy band of runners and walkers get to cross paths with one another multiple time, no matter their speed, and so that we stay in busier areas of town to spread our Christmas cheer with the public.  It also offer opportunity for runners and walkers to shorten their course and finish earlier if they choose.
