A plethora of festive jolly joggers set to take over south Birmingham this Christmas in aid of Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice.
This year, the charity’s annual festive fun run – the ‘Jingle Bell Jog’ will be taking place at Birmingham Moseley Rugby Club on Sunday 3rd December.
The club grounds will be decorated red as hundreds of runners dressed in Mr and Mrs Claus suits – (which will be provided free of charge by the Hospice), take up the challenge.
You do not have to be Mo Farrah to take part, you can run, jog or walk the 2.5k and 5k routes.
Once the finish line is crossed, not only will you be rewarded with a medal and moreish mince pie, yule ooze kudos for being a part of something awesome and have the opportunity to get last minute Christmas gifts at the festive market for runners and spectators.
Organised by Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice, the Jingle Bell Jog will help raise crucial funds for the local charity which provides expert care to individuals and families living with terminal illness.
Lucy Watkins, events manager at the Hospice, said: “Our Jingle Bell Jog is a lively event which really kickstarts the festive season. Seeing hundreds of Santas dashing for a good cause really is a sight to behold and everyone always has lots of fun on the day.
“Whilst Christmas is definitely a time to celebrate, it can also be a time to help others. It will cost £22,000 to run our Hospice on Christmas day and so we really value the generous support of the local community. All sponsorship money raised from this event will allow us to continue to provide the free care and support we offer to individuals and families living in Birmingham and Sandwell.”
The Jingle Bell Jog kicks-off the Hospice’s ‘Care at Christmas’ campaign. Care at Christmas is a festive appeal to boost support for the charity leading up to and over the Christmas period.
Tickets cost £15 for adults, £10 for children and £40 for a family. For children under five-years-old, admission is free.
