Start Your NYE Resolution Off Right with the Garden 2.020 Fun Run in Norfolk

Kick-off the New Year in a fun, healthy way. Run through 2.020 miles of spectacular light displays in the most beautiful place in Coastal Virginia —Norfolk Botanical Garden!

Each year more than 600 runners and their families enjoy the Dominion Energy Garden of Lights annual light show extravaganza while starting off the New Year on the right foot—and the left! The Garden 2.020 Fun Run is a fundraising event that helps support Norfolk Botanical Garden programs. This event will go on rain or shine. Enjoy a Kids’ Dash, special entertainment, food, drinks, and more!

This run is fun for the entire family. Everyone entering the Garden, including spectators, must purchase a ticket. Spectators are invited to walk through the lights, starting from the designated walkers’ area, after all, runners have started the Run. Spectators also may enjoy pizza and beer in Rose Garden Hall after the Run. This is not a timed run; it is a family fun run.

Parking is included with your ticket. Given the volume of vehicular traffic expected for the event, we ask for your patience while parking attendants direct you to available parking in our main lot.

Pets are not allowed at this event, except for ADA-designated service animals. Registration for the Garden 2.020 Fun Run is $10.00 for children (3-10) and $50 for all other participants. Online registration will end at noon on January 1, 2020. You can register now at www.norfolkbotanicalgarden.org. Tickets will also be available at the event, but we encourage you to pre-register—it sells out fast!

We know you love your home at The Westport Apartments in Norfolk, Virginia, but it’s important to stay active and involved in your community. Attending this event is the perfect chance for you to journey outside your comfort zone to meet new people and seek new opportunities.
