Small Race Preview: 2019 Jingle Bell Run 5K / 1K (Bend)

Jingle bells are taking the place of cowbells at this great event in Bend – the Jingle Bell Run! Grab your most festive [running-friendly] outfit and come out for a quick 5K to benefit The Arthritis Foundation. As always, 100% of the proceeds will go toward this cause.

There will be a costume contest (and a dog costume contest!) so bring the whole family for the festivities! Stick around after the race for the Bend Holiday Parade downtown, as well!
