Jingle Bell Run Raleigh

Raleigh, NC

Be part of the longest-standing, holiday-themed 5K race series anywhere – and fight with us to conquer arthritis!

The Arthritis Foundation’s original Jingle Bell Run is the longest-standing festive race around, helping champion arthritis research and bringing people from all walks of life together to say Yes to furthering a great cause. Get jolly for a reason and be there with bells on for the one in four Americans with arthritis!

Bring your friends, family and co-workers to a fun-filled day of holiday cheer, where 100 percent of your registration fee and fundraising efforts go to charity. If you’d rather just walk, no problem!
The event features a 5K run/walk - timed or not, a 1-mile run/walk - not timed, and a Reindeer Dash for children 12 and under (on the campus at the school). We will have a costume contest with prizes for youth, adult and team winners, refreshments, holiday music, a team meeting area, and a photo op with real snow! We will have a local media personality for our emcee.

Top competitive 5K runners receive prizes and all young children in the Reindeer Dash get a ribbon. Top individual and team fundraisers are recognized and receive prizes.
