The 8th Annual Jingle Bell 5k Run and Ugly Sweater Contest

December 18, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm UTC-6

The Independence Run & Hike Jingle Bell Run is a more a celebration and race rolled into one fun event. Held every year on the Sunday before Christmas this “running party” often bring snow and laughter.

The race winds its way throught the heart of Carbondale and then up White Hill to get great views of Mount Sopris, racing back to the store.

Wear an Ugly sweater or your favorite holiday costume and bring traction devices for your shoes, because the roads are often slippery this time of year. There will be an awesome prize for the winner of our ugly sweater contest (this prize is much better than winning the actual race:).

The race benefits the local High School Track and Cross Country Teams and the entry fee is just $10, with a free Dos Gringos burrito certificate (valued at $10), coffee, and hot chocolate for anyone who signs up.

This is a great local event that helps knit our running community together, don’t miss it!
