2012 Jingle Bell Beach Run

8th Annual Jingle Bell Beach Run

Sunday December 23, 2012  l  7:30 am  l  Kailua-Kona Pier

3.1 mile run  l  1 mile walk

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, who teamed up to give this run a Christmas twist. 

One thing Tanimoto strived for was to keep this run simple and fun. With that in mind, it has grown over the last few years to a first-class event, one that participants remember, enjoy and return year after year for more. There is no entry fee for this event. The distances encourages participation from all fitness levels and running backgrounds. 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.
