The festive nighttime run is a tour de South Philly, of sorts, where holiday decorations and twinkly lights are in anything but short supply. Runners gathered at Broad and Oregon at 7 and set off to peep the lights. The run ended at American Sardine Bar with—what else?—drinks and fun.

Check out photos of the festivities below.
