• 1st Annual Fox Island Santa 5K & Jingle Dash

    Wahoo! The Fox Island Community and Recreation Association (FICRA) is hosting (with much love and support from our community) the very first annual 5K Santa Run and Kids’ Jingle Dash on Sunday, December 12th. Santa Run begins at 9:00 a.m. at the Nichols Community Center. The Jingle Dash, for 12 years and under, at 10:30 a.m. on the Nichols Community Center track. We will have professional timekeepers for those that are wanting to mark their “best” time.

    Whether you run, walk, jog or just plan to be an exuberant cheerleader, the 5K course runs from the Nichols Community Center to the Chapel and back, a perfect 3.1 miles (5K). We will host a coffee and donut truck at the Nichols Community Center to get your morning rolling and blood pumping! We can only have a limited number of participants so be sure to sign up early. Parking will not be available at the Nichols Community Center, so we have arranged for transportation from the Alliance Church parking lot by shuttle (as we have done in the past for the Fair).

    Santa Run 5k – $20
    Jingle Dash – $10
    Registrations include a T-Shirt & Jingle Bell
