Jingle Bell Charity Run set for Dec. 6

Comox Valley Road Runners event benefits food bank

The Comox Valley Road Runners are s once again hosting the annual Jingle Bell Charity Run on Dec. 6.  This popular event offers something for everyone, where neither running experience nor speed are important.

Participants can choose one of three options in 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.  Collect playing cards along the way and at the end the best three poker hands win prizes.  Great fun for the whole family.

Registration takes place from 10 to 10:30 a.m. at the Bates Road entrance to Seal Bay Park.  The entrance fee is $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 cvrr.ca or contact Wilf Craats at wcraats@shaw.ca.

So get out your Santa hat and winter woolies, lace up your runners and join us Dec. 6 at Seal Bay Park to help support this great cause. Please carpool if possible.
