Jingle Bell Beach Run - 5k Run (13th Annual)

December 17, 2017
The Jingle Bell Beach Run began in December of 2005 in an effort to kick off Christmas week with a bang! The idea blossomed from the creative mind of Rani “The RoadRunner” (Tanimoto) Henderson to give this run a Christmas twist. Henderson only had a week to put her organizational skills to the test, and on December 18, 2005, it became the first annual Jingle Bell Beach Run!

One thing Henderson strived for was to keep this run simple and fun. With that in mind, and together with the help of her husband Penn, it has grown over the last few years into a first-class event – one that participants remember, enjoy, and return year after year for more! In addition, awards are given out to the top overall finishers as well as the top three best dressed Christmas costumes. Raffle prizes follow the awards, so it's very hard for one to go home empty handed!
