Make a difference and race your way! 

Our world is a different place now. All of us are working to safely adapt and thrive amid the constraints and guidelines necessary to slow the spread of the coronavirus. We hope that you are staying safe and healthy. Even as COVID-19 has challenged us all to find new ways of working and living, the other health care needs of our community have not stopped. Some of our friends and neighbors are still battling cancer, strokes, and other devastating illnesses. Babies are still being born. People are still learning to walk and talk again after traumatic brain injuries. And we are committed to helping them recover with your support.

In light of these unique circumstances, Morristown Regional Cancer Center has made the decision to officially shift the 2020 Jingle Run for Hope to a virtual event which will allow our participants to race your way! All participants can walk as individuals or with their family in their local neighborhood or on one of our certified courses. It's easy to show your support:

Join our virtual team. We will walk as individuals or with our families between December 5 - 20, 2020. Join us by Racing Your Way to show your continued support to the cause and commitment to participate this season. Simply select the type of run you’d like to participate in: 

  • 1 mile walk/run anywhere event utilizing any 1 mile route that the participant chooses.
  • 5K walk/run anywhere event utilizing any 5K route that the participant chooses.
  • 5K run event on a certified course at Panther Creek State Park. Participants must utilize the RaceJoy app to log their time and distance to be eligible for awards.

We will still feel a powerful sense of community knowing that thousands of individuals and families are walking alongside us in their neighborhoods and communities across East Tennessee. With your help we will continue to support the patients and families impacted by cancer in our local community. 

We hope you will consider joining Morristown Regional Cancer Center in this year's Jingle Run for Hope. Thank you for making a difference. 

How does our virtual race work?

Between the dates of December 5th and December 20th, run or walk the virtual course that you chose when you registered. Our event will offer several virtual versions of walk/run events- a 1 mile walk/run anywhere event utilizing any 1 mile route that the participant chooses, two 5K events - one utilizing any 5K route that the participant chooses and one that will utilize a certified 5K course. Each choice will allow use of the RaceJoy application from RunSignup to capture and record time and distance or a participant can record their time for any of the "run anywhere" courses using their Garmin, FitBit, or whatever method they choose and manually submit their time.

The only requirement for the "run anywhere" events is that the participants complete the walk/run in one session. Participants may utilize the RaceJoy application to record their time and distance or they can manually record and submit their time. We will post the time on the RunSignUp and Total Race Solutions sites. No awards for the "run anywhere" events.

  • The participants who choose the Walk/Run on a certified course option will be required to walk/run a certified course. We have chosen Panther Creek State Park as our certified course.

In order to be eligible for awards the certified course, participants must utilize the RaceJoy Application to record their time.

Participants will be able to post their individual results either using the RaceJoy application or manually beginning at 12:00 AM on December 5, 2020 and ending at 11:59 PM on December 20, 2020. Only results captured and posted on the RaceJoy application will be eligible for awards on the certified 5K course.
