Come and join our annual year end holiday event! Its all about the toys and the fun. Put a smile on a child’s face for a REALLY great cause. Bring a toy for Toys for Tots, go for a walk or run along the San Lorenzo River Levee.  You can choose either 5K or 10K to run or walk, the  kid’s 1K for kids 10 and under.

You can get some exercise before you go holiday shopping! This event makes a difference in our community! Please come out and give all the support you can.

This is the 11th year for Jingle Bell Rock and each year as the participation grows we try to set a big goal for collecting toys. Our goal for this year  is 1000 toys. All the collected toys stay in our community.

Kid’s 1K will start at 9:00am, and this year it will be timed with the top 3 boys and girls under 10 receiving special recognition.  Each participant in the 1K will receive a jingle bell as a finisher’s award.  Suggested for Kids 10 and under. 

The 5K and 10K will be timed and start at approximately 9:15 after the 1K finishes.  Runners will line up and go first, followed by the walkers.  If you have a stroller we ask that you position yourself appropriately for the run or the walk.

The course for this event can be viewed at Map My Run at this link:

The 10K is two loops and the 5 K is one loop, starting and ending at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in Santa Cruz.
