Metro Parks Tacoma expands field for Dec. 24 Jingle Bell Run

Metro Parks Tacoma has added a second wave to its annual Christmas Eve Jingle Bell Run in order to accommodate more people.

The popular run at Wright Park often sells out (as did Metro Parks’ recent Thanksgiving Turkey Trot). The first wave starts at 10:30 a.m. Dec. 24 and the second wave begins at noon.

Registration for the 3-mile run is $10 through Dec. 21 and $20 at the event if space is available. The race is chip-timed and includes a costume contest. Awards are given for various categories including ugliest sweater and best dog costume.
