Wilf Craats of the Comox Valley Road Runners and Santa take a break from loading food donations into the Comox Valley Food Bank van at the 2015 Jingle Bell Charity Run.

Jingle Bell Run supports Comox Valley 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 Dec. 2.

Families are welcome at this popular event that offers something for everyone. Participants can choose one of three options in the beautiful Seal Bay Park: walk the seven-kilometre 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 is from 9:45 to 10:15 a.m. at the Bates Road parking lot at the park. The entry fee is $5 plus a non-perishable food donation. All proceeds go to the Comox Valley Food Bank.

There will be plenty of draw prizes and refreshments, and perhaps a ‘run-in’ with Santa.

So get out your Santa hat and winter woolies, lace up your runners and join us Dec. 2 at Seal Bay to help support this great cause. Please carpool if possible.
