NYRR Jingle Bell Jog

 

A Holiday Gift Wrapped as a Race

This festive family favorite is more than just a road race, it's also a celebration and a fundraiser for NYRR's youth programs. Not only does your entry fee snag you a holiday souvenir and post-race hot chocolate, the proceeds from this race fund youth running programs in schools all over the city!

Give the Gift of Running
Your race entry goes to support our youth programs year round. An additional $25 donation helps us put new running shoes on deserving kids' feet, and further provides them with the access they need to run. With the additional $25 donation, donors will get a fun gift. You can donate at check out, or during bib pickup.

Proceeds from the Jingle Bell Jog benefit NYRR's Youth Programs, which provide running programs and events for more than 215,000 children in schools across the United States.
