Santa Claus really is coming to town! Sign up for the Solihull Jingle Bell Jog

Solihull Editorial 24th Nov, 2021   0

Join Solihull BID to spread plenty of festive cheer this December by donning a Santa suit and completing the Jingle Bell Jog to raise money for homeless charity Change Into Action.

The Jingle Bell Jog, kindly sponsored by Touchwood, will take place on Sunday 12th December and see Solihull town centre taken over by more than 300 Santas!

Run, walk, dance, jog or jingle your way around our family-friendly 2.5km fun run through Solihull town centre. Don’t worry about the training, this festive run is about dressing up and coming together with friends and family.

Every single person who completes the 2.5km course will be given a special Santa Suit, Santa medal and free Solihull BID Christmas tote bag.

Entrants will also be treated to a range of discounts in some of our brilliant food and drink venues so you can refuel after completing the course!

As well as having plenty of fun, your entrance fee will be helping to raise vital funds for the Change Into Action charity.

Registrations cost £12 for adults; £8 for children under 12, plus booking fees. Please note: children’s suits start at age 4, if your child is younger than 4 but would still like a suit please purchase a child’s ticket, otherwise they can still take part for free but will not receive a suit or medal. If your child is age 4 – 6 but would fit better in a 7 – 9 suit, please purchase a 7- 9 suit.

Change Into Action is an Alternative Giving Scheme launched in Solihull, supporting specialist organisations and outreach services working to change the circumstances of rough sleepers and those at risk of becoming rough sleepers. Working alongside agencies such as the West Midlands Combined Authority, Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council and West Midlands Police, Solihull BID hopes to make a lasting difference.

Registrations are open to both adults and children and your entrance fee will include a Santa suit to wear on the day, a Santa medal and a Solihull BID Christmas tote bag.

The race starts and ends in Mell Square, Solihull. You will be able to register and collect your suit between 8.30am – 9.45am. The race will start at 10.30am after a fun warm up.
