Monday 4th December 2017
 
 
Over 550 Santas, Elves and Reindeers took part in the Jingle Bell Jog on a bright and crisp Sunday morning at MediaCityUK Salford.
 
Supporting the Dreams Come True Charity, the Jingle Bell Jog welcomed participants from far and wide with families, friends, work colleagues and even dogs coming dressed in festive costumes to walk, jog or run the short distance around the Quays.
 
The route took in a number of famous landmarks with the start and finish of the race positioned directly outside the BBC buildings, providing a superb backdrop for some memorable photographs.
 
Those who took part were well supported by their nearest and dearest and other activities within the Piazza keep all entertained throughout the event with classic Christmas songs, a number of players from Manchester Giants Basketball on hand to meet and greet the runners with that all important finisher’s medals and selection box. The icing on top of the Christmas cake was two of Santa’s real Reindeers available for selfies on the day!
 
The Jingle Bell Jog was Sports Tours International’s biggest festive-themed event in recent years having doubled the amount of participants who took part back in 2015, and this brings to a close their 2017 event series.
 
Graham Jackson, Race Director for Sports Tours International said; “The Jingle Bell Jog is an event that is a great celebration for the whole family and this more than our other events sees us welcome a wide spectrum of participants even families with buggies and dogs dressed up in Christmas costumes – it’s a wonderful sight to see!”
 
A number of prizes were handed out on the day, including Best Dressed Family who won a family ticket for ‘Elf – The Musical’ which was kindly donated by The Lowry.
 
Photographs from the event are available to view on the official Facebook page.
