The Jingle Bell Jog will return in 2018!
Let’s paint the town red, green and white and kick off the festive season by getting the whole family dressed up as Santa’s, Elves, Reindeer, Christmas Puddings, Snowmen, Fairies – or anything Christmassy – and Stumble, Walk, Jog or Run around a flat and scenic course in Bowness on the shores of Lake Windermere! It’s the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit and a fun event for all the family to enjoy, and to raise money for worthwhile local charities.
This event is open to all ages and abilities and you can run, jog, walk, jingle, push prams, or wheel wheelchairs. The course is a flat and wheelchair / pram – friendly 2km loop starting and ending at the beautiful Cockshott Point – a peninsular overlooking Lake Windermere.
Entrants can choose on the day whether they complete 1 or 2 laps, and the entry price is based on entrant age rather than the distance covered.
Christmas outfits are essential – and Santa Suits can optionally be purchased via our online entry system. Prizes will be awarded for the best dressed and ALL entrants will receive a festive medal for finishing!
Festive entertainment will be provided before, during and after the race Bryce Street Strummers Ukulele Band – and mince pies and mulled wine will be served by St John’s Hospice and Sight Advice South Lakes – to get us all in the Christmas spirit!
