Jingle Bell Run

The YMCA's annual Jingle Bell Run is not just your typical 5 or 10k. The Jingle Bell Run is a highlight of the holiday season in which more than 5,000 runners, volunteers, sponsors, individuals, children and families -- at all fitness levels and most in holiday costumes -- run through the streets of downtown to benefit the Tellepsen Family Downtown YMCA's Partners Campaign, which provides scholarship dollars for people in need of YMCA programs.

And for the first time ever, this year's Jingle Bell Run will feature a food truck village for those in the races and for those coming out to watch, cheer on and support the runners. The Eating...Our Words Food Truck Village will be serving lunch and other healthy treats all afternoon long, with goodies from the following trucks:Monster PB&J; Zeapod Cakery; Kay's Kitchen; Texas Juice Girl; Bare Bowls.

The Jingle Bell Run will begin and finish in front of the Tellepsen Family Downtown YMCA at 808 Pease. Complimentary parking is available in the KBR Garage (500 Jefferson entrance on Louisiana) and the 1600 Smith Garage (entrance on Bell).
