Jingle Bell Run
December 16 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Independence Run & Hike Jingle Bell Run is a more a celebration and race rolled into one fun event. Held every year on the Sunday before Christmas this “running party” often brings snow and laughter. The race winds its way throughout the heart of Carbondale and then up to White Hill where racers get great views of Mount Sopris before racing back to the store. Wear an Ugly sweater or your favorite holiday costume and bring traction devices for your shoes, because the roads are often slippery this time of year. We will have some awesome prizes including a big prize for the best ugly sweater.
The race benefits the local High School Track and Cross Country Teams and the entry fee is just $15, with a free burrito certificate (valued at $10) for anyone who signs up.
The race starts just behind the store on the Rio Grande path at 11 am. Make sure to get here a little early so that you can register.
