Jolly Jingle Jog (5K Fun Run)
December 5 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 pm
As a part of the Crow River Christmas celebration, Total Strength Fitness still plans to host fifth annual JOLLY JINGLE JOG 5K fun run. We will do all we can to make this event just like our first four years. The only change is that we will follow required protocols in order to ensure the safety of our runners and volunteers. Included in that will be a change in the pre-race treats. I will keep you informed as to what we will be able to provide you. One thing that won’t change, though is the Christmas music before our run!
The run will begin at the Riverside park in Rockford and will end at the pancake breakfast being held at the YWAM property on 20th Street! The pancake breakfast is only $5! There will be no fee to participate in our Jolly Jingle Jog, as it is not meant to be a race, but rather a time to get together with other friends who enjoy moving on our own two feet. However, we do ask that you bring a bag of groceries for the RiverWorks Food Shelf to help our neighbors in need. Key items needed by the food shelf are listed below.
FREE JOLLY JINGLE JOG GIFT FOR EVERY PARTICIPANT!
Last year, each participant received a cozy headband. Previous years, we’ve offer a Jolly Jingle Jog buff! What will the gift be this year? You’ll have to check back to see!
The run starts at 9:00, but come as early as 8:30 to register, drop off your donation, and have some cookies and hot cider!
