Elves Tammy and Tracy show off their best Christmas attire at the 2015 Jingle Bell Run at Seal Bay Park.

Comox Valley Road Runners’ annual Jingle Bell Charity Run goes Dec. 4

Participants can run/walk one of three courses while supporting food bank

The forests of Seal Bay will be ringing with the Christmas sounds of sleigh bells and Santa’s ho-ho-ho as the Comox Valley Road Runners host the annual Jingle Bell Charity Run on Sunday, Dec. 4.

“Families are welcome at this popular event that offers something for everyone,” an event spokesperson said.

Participants can choose one of three options in the beautiful Seal Bay Park: walk the 7 km course starting at 10:30 a.m.; run the 7 km course starting at 11 a.m. or walk/run the scenic 3 km course at 11 a.m.

“Neither running experience nor speed is important as participants collect playing cards along their chosen route. After all this exercise, there are prizes for the best three poker hands. Great fun for the whole family,” the spokesperson said.

Registration takes place from 9:45-10:15 a.m. at the Bates Road parking lot at Seal Bay Park.  The entrance fee is only $5 plus a non-perishable food donation, and all proceeds go to the Comox Valley Food Bank.

Lots of draw prizes and refreshments, and perhaps you’ll have a “run-in” with Santa.  For more information check out the Comox Valley Road Runners website Events tab at www.cvrr.ca or contact Ron Crowther at ron_crowther@telus.net.

“So get out your Santa hat and winter woolies, lace up your runners and join us on Dec. 4 at Seal Bay Park to help support this great cause.  Please carpool if possible,” the spokesperson said.
