Jingle Bell Rock 1K, 5K and 10K

December 9, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm


Hosted by Finish Line Productions

9:00 am for Kids 1K

9:15 for 10K and 5K

Finish Line Productions presents a 10K course (two loops) and a 5K course because the Riverwalk makes a complete loop. You can view the course here. The Kid’s 1K course will be timed this year with awards for the top 3 boys and girls under 10. We especially want to thank the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk for sponsoring again in 2018 with such a great venue – not to mention the killer views of the Boardwalk, the river and the ocean!

You can get some exercise before you go holiday shopping! This event makes a difference in our community! Please come out and give all the support you can. Come and join our annual year end holiday event! Its all about the toys and the fun. Put a smile on a child’s face for a REALLY great cause. Bring a toy for Toys for Tots, go for a walk or run along the Santa Cruz Riverwalk. This is the 10th year for Jingle Bell Rock and each year as the participation grows we try to set a big goal for collecting toys. Last year was great – over 800 toys donated at our sponsor locations and at the race. This year let’s try and hit 1000 toys. All the collected toys stay in our community.


To participate in Jingle Bell Rock you can select to be timed or untimed. Awards for age group winners are large jingle bells on ribbons – suitable for wearing to claim bragging rights, or you can hang them on your tree!
