Race Preview: 2018 Jingle Bells Run (Eugene)

Eclectic Edge Racing is bringing on the holiday cheer on December 22nd for the 2018 Jingle Bells Run 5k/15k in Eugene.

If you’re a runner who’s also a mom like me, family-friendly holiday races are a really fun way to get in the spirit. This race not only has a 5k and 15k option, but there is a Kids Rudolph Run and a visit from Santa for the little ones.

The race will be held at the offices of Eclectic Edge Racing in Eugene and a big perk to this wintertime event is that there will be indoor space available both before and after the races so you can keep yourself nice and toasty. There will also be plenty of parking available adjacent to the event. If you like to know what you’re getting yourself signed up for, you can view the 5k course map here and the 15k course map here.  Both courses will be along the Fern Ridge Bike Path. The turn-around points on the 15k course will have prizes waiting for you.

The cost of the race is only $25 for adults and $20 for those ages 17 & under and 60 & over. Race day, the costs will increase $5. You’ll be eligible for random prizes and there will be post-race refreshments to enjoy. There will also be a limited selection of shirts to peruse on race day for purchase.

Come out to Eugene with the whole family and jingle all the way!
