Sometimes races are about getting up early on a Saturday morning and preparing to reach the limits. Other times they are about wearing themed clothes and having a good time in the evening. The Keizer Jingle Dash 5K on December 14th is one of those, with prizes for best costume and a parade route course with plenty of spectators.
As mentioned above, this race is in the evening, with a 6 pm start time, at the Keizer Chamber office. There are two options for packet pickup, the preceding Friday at 3 and on race day at 5 pm, also at the Keizer Chamber office. Entry includes an event shirt (if registered before November 29th) and a goodie bag. Registration online is $30, or $20 for youth.
In the hustle, bustle, and stress generally found in the holiday season, this event may be a perfect counterpoint. Low pressure, and short enough for the whole family to run, it also comes with the entertainment of being able to watch the parade after the race. The costume contest will just add to the fun aspect.
