Get your bells on for the 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 once again host the annual Jingle Bell Charity Run on Sunday, Dec. 3.

Families are welcome at this popular event that offers something for everyone. Participants can choose from one of three options in Seal Bay Park: walk the 7km course starting at 10:30 a.m.; run the 7k course starting at 11 a.m. or walk/run the scenic 3k 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.

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

There are lots of draw prizes and refreshments. Perhaps you’ll even have a “run-in” with Santa.

Please carpool if possible.
