For those runners and walkers that want to freeze off their patooties this weekend… there’s the Jingle Bell Run!
Cincy Chic will have a booth and my fiance, WLWT’s Pete Scalia will be emceeing it. Pete has Rheumatoid Arthritis, so we’re really involved in the Arthritis Foundation…and the all proceeds from the run benefit the Arthritis Foundation Ohio River Valley Chapter, which helps lots of local people like Pete live and cope with all the yucky forms of arthritis.
Individuals or teams can register for the event. Pre-registration and packet pick-up is available Thursday, December 6th from 11am-7pm and Friday, December 7th from 11am-2pm at Bob Ronckers Running Spot. Pre-Registration will also be held at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center from 4-7pm on Friday, December 7th. Pre-registration is $20 per entry and $30 with a long sleeve event t-shirt. Race Day registration is $25 per entry and $35 with a long sleeve event T-shirt.
There will also be a Holiday Costume Contest, a free Kids Candy Cane Fun Run (ages 7-12) at 10:05am, a free Toddler Trot (ages 3-6) at 10:05am and the awards ceremony honoring the top three male and female finishers and the top one hundred male and female finishers of the race.
