Event Information

The Arthritis Foundation’s original Jingle Bell Run is a fun way to get decked out and be festive, while racing to raise funds and awareness to cure America’s #1 cause of disability. Few runs in the country are quite like this one, as the Jingle Bell Run takes place entirely UNDERGROUND. The course is flat, festive and fun and, best of it, it never ventures outside into the brutal winter climate. The Jingle Bell Run is the perfect family event, with appearances from child-friendly guests like Santa Claus, Kansas City Royals mascot Sluggerrr, jugglers, a magician, your favorite Star Wars characters, a live deejay, and more. And don't forget about our Holiday Hallway, a darkened stretch of the run that's aglow with thousands of lights and decorations! All participants receive a long-sleeved T-shirt and a finisher's medal.
