Run: 2011 Jingle Bell 5K

Ring in the holiday season with a festive run

The locals around Bucks County Community College may not be thrilled by this jingling wake-up call—but you’ll have a blast! Sport a Santa suit, don the elf ears and tie some bells to your laces for the 2011 Jingle Bell Run/Walk on December 10th. Organized by the Arthritis Foundation, proceeds will help fund research and community outreach programs. Extra incentive to dress up: a costume contest precedes the 5K run.

Can’t make it? Register for the race’s second installment the next morning at General Wayne Elementary School in Malvern.

(Psst. This race made our list of 12 ways to offset the holiday excess. Here’s to checking it off!)
