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. 

Hosting over 6,000 participants (including our furry friends too) each year, we are proud to be the #1 Jingle Bell Run in the country! Our participants are competitive runners, families, corporate teams, social clubs and individuals.  People dress up in festive holiday attire, tie bells to their shoes and run through downtown Seattle to support those living with Arthritis!
