What to expect!

The course runs south on Van Ness to Wilson Ave starting from the corner of Palm and Shaw and then returns up Van Ness Blvd.  The Jingle Bell Run will feature a Christmas designed Sweatshirt and Jingle Bells to all registered participants. The hope is to get each runner or walker to bring a new unwrapped toy and for doing so they will be awarded a Santa Hat!  After completing the event participants will be treated to Christmas Cookies and Hot or Cold Chocolate Milk.

Let it SNOW! We are very excited to announce that we can predict snow at our Start and Finish line! That’s correct, we have the same technology that Disneyland deploys to bring snow to Christmas Tree Lane!

The 5K is timed with age group awards and 2 mile walk is not timed!  PLEASE!  For safety reasons dogs are not allowed!  Although strollers are welcome!
