Worcester Jingle 5K Team Announced

Jingle 5K Team

Written by Roland J. Hamelin, Contributing Correspondent
It's not Christmas Time in Worcester, Massachusetts without the annual Jingle 5K!
It's easily the most festive, most colorful, and most visible December running event in the area.
Hundreds of runners, many of them dressed up as North Pole Elves, Santa Claus look alike, Mrs. Claus (or Jessica as many know her), the hapless Grinch and even the occasional Dickens character ambling about carrying the biggest goose in the market.
In general, it's a great way to celebrate a fitness event and the holidays all in one day!

Worcester Jingle 5K Race Route
The Worcester Jingle 5K is run around the downtown Worcester and Canal District area.

Andy Sharry information

Andy is the Director of Fitness and Wellness at Worcester Fitness. "Connecting people is my passion. I love to facilitate opportunities for humans to interact in positive ways in healthy, balanced endeavors. In my personal and public life, it's what I'm most proud of. The medals earned, weight lost, miles run are incredible feats. But, it all takes a back seat to the connections members of my team have forged. These are lifelong bonds, and I'm so proud be a major part of improving the lives of other people. Come see me at Worcester Fitness.
