The TRI- COUNTY YMCA of the Ozarks presents the first of what will become an annual event: The YMCA 5K Run/Walk “JINGLE JOG 2015”. This exciting event will take place on SATURDAY, DECEMBER THE 19th with the start and finish of the race to be at the YMCA PARKING LOT LOCATED AT 950 Airport Road in Osage Beach, MO. 65065. The participants and spectators will be able to stay warm and cozy before and after the event in the lobby of the YMCA. This event will benefit the kids at the YMCA and the participants will be able to burn off some of those “holiday calories” a little early. Registration for the event will start at 8AM at the Y and the race will begin at 9AM. Early bird registration will be until December the 11th for $20.00. Registration the day of the race on the 19th will be $25.00. You can pick up registration forms at the YMCA. The participants will be divided into age divisions and the overall 5K male and female winners will receive a FREE CHRISTMAS HAM. The number of entries in each class will determine how many hams will be given out. For those of you who want to participate but don’t want to do an entire 5K, there will be a 2 mile walk; however that will be for fun and no prizes awarded. AFTER THE RACE THE FUN BEGINS; Santa will be present to take photos with the kids and there will be a Hot Cocoa bar, music and games for the kids. You will definitely want to bring the kids to this fun event.
