The Jingle Bell Run/Walk has always been on my list to attend. It's different from most runs. It started years ago when they used to hold the run at St Scholastica. When people would leave early to go have drinks or eat. The event then moved to Grandma's Sports Garden.

The Jingle Bell Run in Duluth is scheduled for 8:00 a.m. on December 2 and registration is going on now.  This year’s Jingle Bell Run will feature a 5K, 1 Mile and Kids Fun Run, and a specialty hot chocolate bar to warm up.  Entry fees start at $20 for kids and $30 for adults.

Every year people have fun with it by dressing up and getting in to the costume contest. Some people just dress up to call attention to a friend or family member they are walking for. There are incentives to sign up early and also you can set up your account and start collecting early in order to get your team organized. The Run benefits and is a fund raiser for the Arthritis Foundation.
