Please join us for the Fifth Annual Jingle Jog 5K & Holiday Hustle 1 Mi. Run/Walk, and 'Dasher Dash' for tots, all to benefit "Tranquility House Domestic Violence Center--Christian League for Battered Women." (www.tranquility-house.org)  

Held at the Sam Smith Park just outside downtown Cartersville, GA, this event is quickly becoming a holiday tradition.  The course is USATF-Certified (GA18041WC), and not only is it scenic but it's also very fast.  It is an official Peachtree Road Race qualifier.

So, come enjoy this fun, family-friendly scenic route encircling Cartersville's majestic Sam Smith Park!  Word on the street is that Santa will be there, and you won't want to miss him!!  He's making a list of registrants, checking it twice, and it's probably naughty to miss this race.  So BE NICE!  Come out with the whole family and be a part of this fast-growing holiday tradition in Cartersville!!  Run it, walk it, or crawl it. Just be a part of it.

Dress up in your most creative costume (See Costume Contest divisions below).  Even Fifi and Bowzer are invited, so dress up those 4-footed furries and BRING...YOUR...FRIENDS!
