‘Jingle Bell Run’ for the Arthritis Foundation

Posted: Updated:

Lace up your running shoes with jingle bells; it's almost time for the Jingle Bell Run.

The race is set for Saturday, December 15. Organizers are encouraging runners and walkers to wear holiday-themed costumes as they race for a good cause.

The 5K run and walk at King Family Vineyards in Crozet will benefit the Arthritis Foundation.

"Dollars from this event, I'm so pleased to hear, are going directly back to research and of course it's an event that's all about exercise and weight bearing, so the two go very much hand in hand. It's a really nice combination," said Mark Lorenzoni, race director and co-owner of Ragged Mountain Running.

Runners and walkers can register at the course on the day of the event, but online registration is now open.
