The Jingle Bell Fun Run 2017 is now open for public entries! Barshaw Park in Paisley will be jingling with the sound of Christmas bells as runners take part in this annual festive run.
This year marks the 15th anniversary of our event so we'll be celebrating the occasion with some festive surprises!
There are two races - a 3k run at 11am open to all runners/walkers aged 8 and over, and a 1k run at 12pm open to runners/walkers of any age, including those in buggies. Both races are set within the boundaries of the scenic Barshaw Park in Paisley. The online price for the 3k run is £4 for those aged 8-17 and £6 for those aged 18 and over. The online price for the 1k run is £4 for all ages.
Wear jingle bells on your hats, jackets, gloves, shoes or wherever you choose and be part of an amazing Jingle Bell orchestra! Bells will be provided. Fancy dress is optional however there will be spot prizes for the best costumes! Special 15th anniversary commemorative medals will be awarded to all race finishers.
