Great swag, pre-race yoga, and the electric atmosphere of a holiday race event promise to make the 16th annual Jingle Bell Rockin’ Run the best ever!

The options of 5k, 10k, Kids Fun Run, and costume contest make this a great family event. Organizers give long sleeve dry fit T-shirts, as well as great medals for many race categories to be sure it’s a race you’re proud of be part of! The well-designed course offers a great challenge in a 5k as well as a good intermediate distance of 6.2 miles for runners.

The title sponsor, the ALBEMARLE FOUNDATION, has led the way for you to join in supporting a great cause; the We Build People Scholarship Fund, makes YMCA programs and services affordable to all in our community.

New partner, Daisy Yoga, is leading the Pre-Race Yoga at 8am to help you warm up, loosen up, and run your best race ever! Pre- and post-race snacks and drinks (yes we still give out that great hot chocolate and coffee!), and free child care provided by safe and well-trained YMCA staff help make this a great race for everyone. You can also find out about couch-to-5k programs that we offer leading up to the event.

Packet Pickup is Friday, December 1 from 3-7:30pm, and race day pickup/registration is from 7-8:30 am. So come out at 9am, Saturday, December 2 to First Baptist Church, 605 W. Kings St., Kings Mountain, NC, for an awesome race and make some memories with family and friends!
