Hello to all Niantic Jingle Bell Runners/walkers:

Dear NJB5K Friends-
Although we are disappointed that we cannot be together for the 2020 Niantic Jingle Bell 5k, we understand everyone’s safety is the priority. This will be a VIRTUAL event only. 
If you do not want to do the virtual race you can defer to next year, donate your entry fee or receive a refund of your entry fee. Follow this link for instructions on how to do this.

We still have HOPE. Hope in you! That you will continue this tradition of supporting the mission of the Brian Dagle Foundation and Brian's Healing Hearts Center for Hope & Healing. The participants can join by walking or running your own route or the NJB5K route in Niantic, anytime up until Christmas! Virtual registration is open until December 31st.
