About 1,000 participants wind their way through the tree-lined streets in Albany's beautiful Rawson Circle neighborhood. Children are invited to cheer on the runners by ringing jingle bells at the start and finish lines at Phoebe Healthworks. Three-deep awards in 15 age categories go to the 5K and 10K runners Proceeds from the Jingle Bell Jog benefit the Children's Miracle Network.
The top male and female over 40 in the 5K and 10K receive Master awards. And, everyone crossing the finish line receives a ticket and a chance for one of dozens of door prizes. Age groups are as follows: 6-9, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75 & up. The Jingle Bell Jog is an affiliate of Run & See Georgia.
