Join us for the second annual Jingle All the Way 5k! This is going to be a fun and relaxed 3.1 miles throughout the beautiful historic town of Mardela Springs, MD. Situated directly on Barren Creek, Mardela Springs is located between Salisbury and Cambridge, Maryland, right off of Route 50. Many years ago travelers and tourists going to and from Ocean City had to go through Mardela Springs to get to their destination because the old Ocean Gateway or Rt. 50 (now Main Street) was the connection between the big cities and the eastern shore. The history in the area is tremendous. Runners will have the opportunity to see Barren Creek, the Barren Creek Spring House, Barren Creek Springs Church, the former Barren Creek Springs Hotel,  several historic homes, the Westside Historical Museum, and the Adkins Historical Complex. To learn more about the history of our little town go to our website at 

Runners, walkers, young and old are welcome! Feel free to wear your favorite holiday sweaters, shirts, hats, etc. and show your Christmas spirit. The course is leashed-dog friendly, wheelchair and stroller accessible. Volunteers will offer water throughout the course and snacks after completion. Drawings for prizes will be held at 10:30. All participants names will be put in the drawing but winners must be present to claim prizes. This day is all about building community by getting your body moving in the fresh air.

Visit our website at and our FaceBook page "Westside Historical Society Inc" for more information and updates. 

*Stay or come back a little later for our community Home for Christmas celebration from 1-5 pm. There will be food, music, tours, a scavenger hunt, and Santa’s Workshop.
