20th Anniversary Jingle Bell Run

‘Tis the season to lace up those running shoes and get ready to jingle all the way! Active Communities is thrilled to announce the 20th Anniversary Jingle Bell Run, set to take place on December 3rd at Barshaw Park in Paisley.

Barshaw Park will be alive with the unmistakable sound of Christmas bells, creating a jolly atmosphere for all. The festivities kick off with a 3k run at 11am, open to all those aged eight and over. Then, at 12pm, the fun continues with a 1k run open to participants of all ages, including those in buggies.

Participants are encouraged to deck themselves out in festive fashion by wearing jingle bells on hats, coats, gloves, shoes, or wherever their creativity takes them. Bells will be provided on the day upon presentation of your race number.

To make this anniversary extra special, all race finishers will receive commemorative 20th Anniversary Christmas-themed medals—a keepsake to cherish for years to come. And for those who want to add a touch of whimsy to their run, there will be spot prizes for the best costumes.

Cheryl Thomas, Programme Development Manager at Active Communities explained:

“The Jingle Bell Run is the ideal way to begin the festive season. We expect that this year, our 20th Anniversary, will be bigger and better than ever! We can’t wait to hear the bells ring out across Paisley, and to see what fantastic costumes our amazing joggers have in store for us! It’s a wonderful event for all the family.”

Entry to this merry event is just £7 for the 3k run and £5 for the 1k run, making it an affordable and joyful way to celebrate the season while supporting a great cause. To add even more excitement to the day, participants can enjoy a free train ride on the Barshaw Park miniature railway. Additionally, face-painting and Christmas entertainment will be on-hand to ensure the festive atmosphere is nothing short of magical.

Active Communities invites the entire community to join in the merriment, whether you are a seasoned runner, a casual jogger, or just someone who loves the holiday spirit. So, grab your bells, lace up your shoes, and be part of the 20th Anniversary Jingle Bell Run—a festive celebration of community, health, and the holiday season.
