Jingle Run 2022

Lace up for our Jingle Run this December!

After two years our much-loved Jingle Run is back in person! Come and join us on Sunday 4th December at V36 at The Valley Park (beside the Valley Leisure Centre) Newtownabbey. 

Walk or run 5k or 10k – you decide! - and kids can take part in our festive Reindeer Dash (1km). Get into the Christmas spirit with your costume or Santa hat and we’ll have a special prize for best dressed!

As well as our festive entertainment on the day you will receive:

• A unique Jingle Run medal for each entrant.
• A free entry into a draw for one of 50 special Jingle Jerseys courtesy of O’Neills.
• Your individual running time.
• A bespoke Jingle Run T-Shirt.
• A branded eco-friendly water bottle.
• Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd for each run category.

Don't worry if you can't join us in person - we also are giving you the opportunity to complete the race virtually before 22nd January 2023 - and still join in the festive fun! 

Online registration has now closed. Runners can still register on the day - just remember to bring your registration fee to step out for Hospice!
