Lace up your sneakers, don your Santa cap, and join other racers at the Jingle Bell Run this year.

Running for a Cause

This 5k is a great way to reflect on your ability to move. The proceeds for this race all go to support the Arthritis Foundation to help those who suffer from this painful autoimmune disorder that affects young and old alike. Even if you cannot participate in the race this year, feel free to donate to for the event.

Things to Remember for a 5k

While this race is all for a good cause and a lot of fun to participate in, you need to make sure you take care of yourself out there on the course. There are couple of things to keep in mind as you run the Jingle Bell Run 5k:

  • Get a good night sleep two nights before the race.
  • Eat a breakfast that is high in energy.
  • Stretch & warm up.
  • Hydrate well
