Jingle as you run on Sunday, Dec. 9.
It's the first Jingle Bell Run sponsored by the Barrington Business Association. You can win a prize for "most festive family" and "best-dressed pooch."
The .7-mile run is billed as a "family fun event" by the merchants group. You can start to jingle at 12 noon.
Go to the Bayside YMCA parking lot. The course goes to Maple Avenue and back to the YMCA.
The cost is $5 per family with all proceeds going to TAP-IN.
Tickets for the run are available at Hollie's on the Avenue, Daisy Dig'ins, and Barrington Pilates on Maple Avenue; Barrington Books in the Barrington Shopping Plaza, and Fitness Together in Prince's Hill Plaza.
Did we mention that the Jingle Bell Run is a "family fun event"? That's worth repeating.
