A Holiday Gift Wrapped as a Race

Now a 5K, this festive family favorite is more than just a road race, it's also a celebration and a fundraiser for NYRR's youth programs. Not only does your entry fee snag you a holiday souvenir and post-race hot chocolate, the proceeds from this race fund youth running programs in schools all over the city!

Proceeds from the NYRR Jingle Bell Jog (5K) benefit NYRR's Youth Programs, which provide running programs and events for more than 267,000 children in schools across the United States.
