In the (festive) spirit of helping as many people to #BeeActiveBeeHealthyBeeHappy as possible in December, The Running Bee is holding a virtual edition of its popular Jingle Bee Jog – all to support our amazing NHS.
Going live today, festive runners will have the whole month to walk, jog, run or even take a leisurely stroll to complete the 5km fun run.
The race costs just £10 to enter with all profits going to support NorthCare Charity, which helps the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group (NCA) provide outstanding care across Bury, Oldham, Rochdale and Salford.
The NCA provides a range of healthcare services across communities and Salford Royal, The Royal Oldham Hospital, Fairfield General Hospital and Rochdale Infirmary.
Participants will also receive a limited-edition medal by post once they’ve completed their challenge.
The Jingle Bee Jog is set to be a fun event for the festive season, with no times taken and everyone is welcome.
So why not dig out the Santa suit and get the whole family bubble dashing through the streets?
Kevin Harmer, Event Logistics & Sponsor Activation Manager at The Running Bee Foundation, said:
“We continue to be amazed by the spirit of our running community, and we are sure that our supporters will be out with their family bubbles this December to show their festive running sprit and help us raise money for fantastic causes in your area.”
Make sure to tag the Running Bee Foundation and @NCareCharity on their socials too – they would love to see you in all your festive finery!
And there will be a special prize of a Garmin watch for the best Festive Foto sent into the Running Bee – which will be chosen by our very own mascot Mo!
