Back by popular demand following a successful inaugural event last year, the Jingle All The 5K, 10K, 1K fun run is poised to become a holiday favorite when runners of all abilities join this year’s encore starting at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, December 1, at the Addicks Park and Ride in the Energy Corridor.
The family friendly fun run is stuffed with early presents – prizes that include vacations, bikes and apparel. Participants will score festive race bibs and performance tech t-shirts, along with an abominable snow monster finishers medal, a Santa hat and a jingle bell.
At the finishing line, runners 21 and up can savor complimentary post-race Christmas Ale refreshments from Saint Arnold Brewing Company.
Santa, dancing reindeer and Jingle fun run mascot the Abominable Snow Monster will be on hand. Runners are encouraged to wear festive holiday attire.
It all makes for entertaining and healthy start to the December holiday season, event organizers say.
The Jingle All The 5K, 10K, 1K fun run benefits Memorial Assistance Ministries (MAM), which will be on site collecting toys. Each toy counts, as the 30-year-old social services provider for West Houston hopes to reach 700 children and families in need. Donated toys should not include stuffed animals, board games or computer games.
Run organizers say the event is designed as a fun way to encourage healthy lifestyles. Positive responses from last year’s post-race survey proved that the fun run was a hit.
A kids 1K kicks off the event at 8:10 a.m. The 5K/10K fun run and walk portion begins at 8:30 a.m. on a flat and fast, out-and-back course along Park Row Drive.
