2014 Jingle Bell 5K Run
Saturday, December 13, 2014 at 9:00a.m.

Title Sponsor:


UPDATE:  We have 300 registered runners including a bus from Malpass Corner Elementary School in Burgaw with their running club and we also welcome Codington Elementary School!

NEW FEATURE: We have a Wilmington Yoga Center instructor, JJ Cook, coming to teach a 30 minute pre-race warm-up yoga class at 8am on Saturday, Dec. 13.  He'll bring a few extra mats but it would be great if you could bring your own or a towel if you don't have a mat.

The Wrightsville Beach Museum of History invites you to participate in the museum's Fourth Annual 5K Jingle Bell Run.  As this will be a celebratory, holiday event, race participants are encouraged to dress in holiday apparel (Santa costumes, antlers, snow men, etc.).  Timing will be by Its-Go-Time.com with Colin Hackman.  In 2014 we expect 500 plus runners!

The 5K Jingle Bell Run will benefit the Wrightsville Beach Museum of History.  Join us in a 5K through the Wrightsville Beach area to see the beach in a new way.  Historic cottages, beautiful winter marshes, and all your old haunts are part of the scenery as you meet the challenge to experience this special 5K and benefit this special museum.
