Jingle Bell Runs Benefits New Trinity Trails




A Dallas tradition for more than 20 years, the Generational Group Dallas Jingle Bell Run is a festive, family-friendly event that includes a nighttime 5k race, one-mile fun run and lively post-race party on December 20 at the Hilton Anatole. All proceeds benefit The Trinity Strand Trail and the Mavs Foundation. Participants come dressed in their spirited holiday attire and will also be given a pair of jingle bells and glow sticks to "jingle all the way" through the race. Carolers and music are placed along the race course.

In 2002, a group of dedicated individuals formed the Friends of the Trinity Strand Trail to spearhead the planning, construction and enhancement of a 7.8-mile, non-motorized hike and bike trail along the original Trinity River watercourse in the heart of the Dallas Design District. This trail will connect the Katy Trail to the Trinity River and provide Dallas citizens access to the Southwestern Medical District, Dallas Market Center, downtown and Uptown Dallas, Stemmons Corridor businesses and the Dallas Design District.

Cost is $15 to $45. To register, visit DallasJingleBellRun.com.
