After a two-year logistical break, we’re pleased to announce the return of the 1-Mile event for runners & walkers of all ages! This event has been a popular choice for many participants over the years – especially for kids who are either too old for Santa’s Keiki Dash – yet maybe not quite ready to tackle the main 5K Event.
This is a timed event – but is primarily aimed at providing an easy & fun option so that just about anyone can come out and enjoy the Jingle Bell Beach Run. No Awards will be given for finishing times. However, 1 Mile costumes will be eligible for the overall Holiday Costume Contest.
