Jingle Bell Rock is Back! 

Come and join our annual year end holiday event!  Well  - it's almost annual since we had to skip last year but we're back and its all about the toys and the fun. Put a smile on a child's face for a REALLY great cause.

This year our collected toys will go the the Salvation Army of Santa Cruz to support their programs and their holiday annual giving drive - The Angel Tree.  We'll have lots more information on that as we get closer to the event, including other locations to drop off toys and specific lists of toys and age groups needed.

You can get some exercise before you go holiday shopping! This event makes a huge difference in our community! Please come out and give all the support you can. All the collected toys stay in our community. 

Kid's 1K will start at 9:00am, and will be timed with the top 3 boys and girls under 10 receiving special recognition.  Each participant in the 1K will receive a jingle bell as a finisher's award.  Suggested for Kids 10 and under. 

The 5K  will be timed and start at approximately 9:15 after the 1K finishes.  Runners will line up and go first, followed by the walkers.  If you have a stroller we ask that you position yourself appropriately for the run or the walk.

The course for this event can be viewed under the course map links listed on the menu above.  The race will not be on the San Lorenzo Riverwalk Levee this year.  We are moving up to West Cliff Drive.  All race activities will start and end at the Surfer Museum Park Area at Lighthouse Point.
