It’s the most wonderful time of the year, runner friends. The annual and always amazing South Philly Holiday Lights Run returns tomorrow, and we couldn’t be more psyched. 

The event, hosted each year by the South Philly Striders and Fishtown Beer Runners, is a for-fun, three-mile group run through the festively illuminated streets of South Philadelphia. The run starts 7 p.m. at Broad and Oregon — conveniently, right next to the Oregon Station on the Broad Street Line — and from there, you’ll wander through neighborhood streets, including the always-glorious-at-the-holidays Miracle on 13th Street. Check out the turn-by-turn route here.

The run ends at American Sardine Bar at 18th and Manton, where runners will get $3 Philadelphia Brewing Company beers and ciders and $3 hot dogs. You’ll have to buy food and drink tickets, which are cash only, so be sure to stow some bills in your running tights. You’ll also need to bring an ID.

Oh, and don’t forget some canned goods, too: There will be food collection at the start for Philabundance.

All the details on this year’s run are right this way. Festive dress is, of course, encouraged. As of now, there are nearly 400 people slated to show up. Soooo, see you tomorrow for what is sure to be an epically good time.
