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. 

Event Location

HCSS - Sugar Land
13151 W. Airport Blvd.
Sugar Land, TX 77478

Event Details & Updates

Due to the larger than anticipated number of registrants, the timed runners will have their own route at Brazos River Bend Park. The Sugar Land Police Department and their traffic department deemed that a route that included West Airport Blvd could not be safely navigated due to the amount of traffic. Our priority is your safety and having a fun, safe event for all.

The non-timed runners and walkers will use a route that is around the HCSS campus perimeter which will not include any city streets. Snowman Shuffle participants will be on the inner track around the Kids’ Zone.

TIMED RUNNERS: You’re encouraged to pick up your packets and bibs prior to event day. If you’re picking up your packet on event day, please plan on picking up your packet no later than 7:10 am to allow enough time to walk to the shuttles. There will be two shuttles that can accommodate a total of 112 participants.

NON-TIMED RUNNERS; WALKERS; SNOWMAN SHUFFLE PARTICIPANTS: Check-in will begin at 7 a.m. if you’re picking up your packet on the event day.
