What's On

Barshaw Park in Paisley will once again be jingling with the sound of Christmas bells as runners take part in this festive run,

the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit with family and friends.

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 3k run is priced £5 for entrants aged 8-17 and £7 for entrants aged 18 and over. The 1k run is priced £4.50 for all ages.

Wear jingle bells on your hats, coats, gloves, shoes or wherever you choose and be part of an amazing jingling orchestra. Bells will be provided on the day upon production of your race number. Christmas themed medals will be awarded to all race finishers and there will be spot prizes for the best costumes should you wish to dress up for the occasion!

Entrants can also enjoy a free train ride on the miniature railway within the park, plus free face-painting and Christmas entertainment, providing the perfect festive atmosphere.

The event is organised by Active Communities, a registered charity set up to promote and support physical activity, community sport and health and well being across Renfrewshire.

Please note: if you wish to make a group booking of 15 or more participants in the Jingle Bell Run please contact info@activecommunities.co.uk for assistance.

The organisers are being assisted by a number of voluntary marshals. The safety of all is paramount and it is a condition of entry that competitors must follow the instructions of the marshals.

The race start time is 11am for the 3k run and 12pm for the 1k run. Race numbers will be posted out to all entrants the week of the race, they will NOT be collected on the day as previously. Entries are only available online in advance, there will be no registrations on the day.
