About the Jingle Bell Beach Run

The Jingle Bell Beach Run began in December of 2005 in an effort to kick off Christmas week with a bang! The idea blossomed from the creative minds of Rani “The RoadRunner” Tanimoto and Gene “Turtle” Power.  They wanted to keep it simple and fun. It has grown over the last few years to a first class training run, one that participants remember, enjoy and return year after year for more! There is no entry fee for this “fun” training run that has accurate timing and starts at 7:30 AM SHARP! The distance of a 5-K or mile encourages participation from all fitness levels, and there’s lot of prizes to go around.

In 2006, Tanimoto and Power began a “special recognition award” given out at the end to a deserving organization or person who has gone above and beyond to help our Big Island Community. In addition, awards are given out to the top overall finishers as well as the top three best dressed Christmas costumes. Raffle prizes follow the awards, so it’s very hard for one to go home empty handed!
