Jingle Bells Jog

Join the Nelson Events for some Christmas fun and support the Heart Foundation at the same time.
The annual Jingle Bells Jog and Santa Walk (family fun run/walk) from the city to Tahunanui Beach. Also welcome is the family dog (on a lead).


On Sunday Dec 14th, Nelson Events stages the annual Jingle Bells Jog and Santa Walk.  Dress up with your family and friends and enjoy the scenic coastline route from Trafalgar Park to Tahunanui Beach to support the Heart Foundation.

You can choose to run, walk, skate or scoot and some lucky participants will be rewarded for their efforts with prizes being awarded for the Most Ringing Bells, Best Christmas Costume (Adult and Under 12), Best Themed Family and even the Best Dressed Dog.  You don’t have to stress over the costume – just adds to the fun if everyone wears or carrys a bell.

For those not wanting to run/walk back to the city from the beach, there will be bus transport for a donation to the Heart Foundation – and well behaved dogs are also welcome.

Entry fee is $5.00 per person or $10 for the family.

Registration opens at 9.15, costume judging at 9.30 and start is 10.00am.

This is a Smokefree event.
