We are excited to invite you to participate in the 5th Annual Mel’s Jingle Run, a festive 5K race that helps the Family Guidance Center in our local community. Mellow Mushroom Hickory has teamed up with RunTimeRaces to host the area’s premier Christmas-themed 5K run/walk. The timed race is family friendly, with all ages invited to participate.  In addition to medals awarded to those who place in the race, there will also be awards given for the most “jingled out” or festive costumes and race apparel. Please make plans to join us on Saturday, December 7th at 9 a.m. in Downtown Hickory.  As a RunTimeRaces produced event, be assured this event will be well organized and leave you with an Awesome Race Experience.

We're asking each participant to bring an unwrapped NEW toy on race day for a chance to win $100 VISA gift card (you will be entered into a drawing to be held immediately following the awards ceremony. You must be present to win.) Toys will be presented to Santa Cops, a charity of the Conover Police Department.  

Early Registration through 11:59 pm on Tuesday, November 26th includes a FREE RACE TEE. Race Day Registration opens from 7:45 am - 8:45 am Race Day (Race Tee NOT Guaranteed during Late or Race Day Registration)
