REASON: Experience a nighttime Christmas lights race through Grasslands Estates West combining Midland's largest race, Christmas lights and, of course, SANTA! This race features food trucks, cookie decorating, pictures with Santa, hot cocoa and the BEST Christmas spirit found in Midland.
RACE: This race will be hosted by Scharbauer Elementary school in collaboration with Grasslands Estates West. This year's race will feature a 1K/5K/10K. NOTE: THE 5K DISTANCE IS 3.0 MILES AND THE 10K DISTANCE IS 6.13 (UNOFFICIALLY). This is due to the layout of the neighborhood and for the safety of runner-flow during the race.
AWARDS: Custom LED medals for ALL 5K/10K finishers. This medal can double as an ornament for your family's Christmas tree!
BENEFITING: Midland Athletic Co. believes in giving back to the community and those who serve it. The 2018 Nighttime Jingle Bell Run will be benefitting Junior Achievement of the Permian Basin. ALL DONATIONS received by runners will go to help support Junior Achievement and their local mission.
