[WHITEHALL, PA, September 25, 2023] —Get your jingle on! Registration is now open for Whitehall Area Rotary’s 7th Annual Jingle Bell 8K Run/5K Walk. The Club is welcoming runners and walkers of all ages and abilities to participate in this fun annual event, to be held this year on Saturday, December 2nd.

The Run will have a rolling start beginning at 9:00 am, and participants will be chip timed for the duration of the race. The race will be professionally timed by the Bryn Mawr Racing Co. Walkers are NOT timed, and will start after the last runners have cleared the starting area.
