Runners,

We successfully hosted five live races from September 17th to November 21st. With various preventive safety measures in place more than 1400 happy runners crossed the finish line at Liberty State Park. Due to the rising numbers of covid cases The State of New Jersey has mandated that we host our upcoming Jingle Bell 5K virtually.

Packet Pick Up: is scheduled for Friday, December 18th  | 330-530pm at Jersey Mike's Subs | 202 Hudson Street Hoboken, NJ 07030.

Results: You can upload your results here: https://runsignup.com/Race/RegistrationLookup/?raceId=95836&renderMode=results_mode

Registered runners will receive a full Santa Suit, race bib, and race shirt (if you purchased). The virtual run can be completed anytime between December 19th and the 31st. 

Given the greater forces, out of our control, behind the changes refunds are not possible. Our group has purchased Santa Suits, race bibs, and shirts on your behalf. We are excited to continue running together and staying motivated.

The Jingle Bell 5K is supporting The Hoboken Community Center's food back. We are asking all participants to please donate, the following items: canned soups, 1-2 pounds bags of rice, baby food, diapers, & baby wipes. If you are able to donate please bring these items with you race day morning.
