I think it's fair to say the gauntlet was thrown in 2014 for best team - Santa and a full team of canine reindeer is pretty hard to beat! So get busy and get those costumes and team designs going for next year because it seems that the bar gets raised a little bit every year.
We've made a few changes to the registration categories for next year - you can select to be timed or untimed and we are adding shirts for everyone who registers by November 20 for this year's event. Becasue there is Thanksgiving holiday the week before this year we absolutely have to have our sirt order in by the Friday before.
Come and join our annual year end holiday event! Its all about the toys and the fun. Put a smile on a child's face for a REALLY great cause. Bring a toy for Toys for Tots, go for a walk or run along the San Lorenzo River Levee.
You can get some exercise before you go holiday shopping! This event makes a difference in our community! Please come out and give all the support you can.
This is the 6th year for Jingle Bell Rock and each year as the participation grows we try to set a big goal for collecting toys. Last year was great - over 800 toys donated at our sponsor locations and at the race. This year let's try and hit 1000 toys. All the collected toys stay in our community.
Awards for age group winners are large jingle bells on ribbons - suitable for wearing to claim bragging rights, or you can hang them on your tree!
