The teams from Atlanta Halloween Half Marathon & 5K are proud to bring a signature holiday themed 5K to Atlanta in Piedmont Park! Holiday running events have long become a popular theme in many cities throughout the world. So we figured, Why Not Atlanta? This event is sure to become a signature event for years to come! So what makes the Jingle Bell Jog unique?! First and foremost, all participants will receive a Santa suit costume, featuring a hat, beard, jacket, pants and a belt; and of course Jingle Bells to attach to your running shoes! And yes, we expect everyone to wear it! The sights and sounds of thousands of bouncing and jingling Santas along the course will be memorable! Additionally, all finishers will receive a signature holiday themed medal. The event is open to both runners and walkers; adults and children. No matter how fast or slow you finish, you are guaranteed a Santa Suit, and a medal when you cross the Finish Line!
Have you been Naughty or Nice this year?! Hmmm… that’s for you to decide! Make sure to keep a sharp eye out on the course and look for the Mistletoe! You might be able to get some kisses along the way as you make your way through the course! Along the course Christmas Carolers will inspire you with their singing! We also encourage you to bring your dogs. They can get dressed up as well! After all Santa needs his reindeer, so dress up your pets as Santa’s Reindeer! And of course, bring your children! We have the Elf Dashes for the kids.
After the 5K, your little elves will take to a shortened course. Children ages 3-10 will participate in distance ranging from 50 meters to 400 meters, broken down into age groups. Children are also welcomed to participate in the 5K.
After the events join us for a Festive party at the finish in Piedmont Park, where we will feast on Egg Nog, Holiday Cookies, and Fruit.
