WHAT TO EXPECT
Come one, come all! This is one Holly Jolly event you won't want to miss!
This is our second year going virtual! Grab your friends and family and run or walk your way to a 5K. This year's event includes an ugly sweater theme, complete with a holiday medal for the first 350 participants*, an ugly sweater t-shirt**, and swag for each participant! You won't want to miss out on this fun holiday tradition!
Complete the virtual Holly Jolly 5K between November 20th and December 5th and share your photos on social media using #HollyJolly5K!
Make a Team
When you register, create a team (we heard Santa will bring extra presents to creative team names!) and invite all your family and friends to join in the holiday magic! This is a great way to kick off the holiday festivities! There will be a prize for the largest team and highest fundraising team!
Create Your Own Virtual Route
Have fun creating your own 5K route using tools like MapMyRun and Strava. Don't forget to share your route using #HollyJolly5K!
Looking for inspiration? Here is an example! This route would have been the Holly Jolly 5K route if the event was in person!
FUNdraise & Give Hope to Children
Fundraising through Race Roster is simple and fun! Log into your Race Roster account and on your dashboard select 'Fundraising'.

Will you help us reach our goal?
