Let's begin our Christmas Eve celebration again this year by jingling through downtown Amherst, spreading joy and cheer to our community. We will also have a 1 mile Fun Walk for all the festive jinglers who want a more casual morning! After the race, please join the Community for Christmas Carols, Hot Cocoa and Christmas Cookies!
And......wait for it....... I have heard that Santa and Mrs. Claus will be there too to greet kids of all ages before they head out for a busy night!
100% of race fees will go to directly to Blessing House which will help make Christmas a little brighter for many children in need! Learn more about this awesome local ministry by clicking here: https://blessinghouse.org/
Your race packets will include a Jingle Bell that each runner and walker will wear during the event so that on Christmas Eve morning, the town of Amherst will be filled with the sound of Jingle Bells! Come join the fun of this new Ohio Christmas Tradition! PS: If you ran last year, bring your jingle bell from that race to wear with your new one to show everyone you are a JATW5K! veteran!
See you there! Merry Christmas! Rev. Brian Russell
