The Jingle Bell Run is a festive family event and a Youngstown holiday institution! There's no better way to end 2013 than by braving the elements and taking on the 5k course at the Canfield Fairgrounds.
The day also features a 1/2-mile Kids Run, prize raffles, refreshments in a heated facility and actual Jingle Bells for all participants!
Despite record snowfall, last year's race was another incredible success! Lots of dedicated runners battled the cold temperatures, snow and wind to once again make the Jingle Bell Run the Valley's premier winter race! Best of all, we were able to raise some well-deserved funds for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life and for Akron Children's Hospital.
REGISTRATION: Pre-register online using your credit card or PayPal account or pre-register by mail. You can also register in person on the day of the race using cash or credit cards.
CHARITIES: In addition to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, this year's proceeds will also benefit the charitable activities of the YSU Penguin Club, with funds being distributed to the Carmine L. Cassese Scholarship at YSU and The James Cancer Center for Pancreatic Research.
