A FREE – FESTIVE- FUN RUN and fundraiser benefiting the Westchester Neighbors Food Pantry.
Started by a small group of friends who love to run, the Chesterton Christmas Eve Jingle Bell Run has grown into a BIG group of friends who love to run AND give back to the community.
Put on your most festive running clothes or just come as you are!
Participants are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items or new/unopened toiletries to be donated to the Westchester Neighbors Food Pantry. 100% Tax Deductible donations to the food pantry will also be accepted (cash or check only), and anyone wanting a receipt for their donation will be given one.
The Chesterton Christmas Eve Jingle Bell Run is a RRCA affiliated event and 501©3 corporation.
ALL PROCEEDS GO TO CHARITY.
We will meet at the Running Vines Winery, 119 S Calumet Avenue, Chesterton – and run one or two 5K loops on a predetermined course. THIS IS NOT A RACE AND WILL NOT BE TIMED.
PLEASE PRE-REGISTER ONLINE NOW – It’s FREE and the day of the run the lines may be long. Registration will also be available (@ Running Vines Winery) that morning starting at 7am and ending about 7:45am. Please pre-register if you can to speed up the check in process the day of.
If you want to walk that’s fine! Just watch out and make way for the runners :) We want everyone to have a great experience!
If you bring your dog, make sure it’s on a reasonable length leash and friendly. Only bring your dog if it’s comfortable around others (whether the others are human or canine). If your dog gets nervous around crowds, it’s best to leave Fido at home :) Dogs will not be permitted inside Running Vines Winery.
