Join O’Rourke Media Group & our sponsors for the 9th Annual Running of the Bells in downtown St. Albans!

REGISTRATION BEGINS AT 5:30pm! Race kicks off at 6:30pm.

The Running of the Bells is a holiday fun run, walk, jog that involves participants attaching jingle bells to their hats, shoes, gloves, coats, strollers, and wherever they would like to in order to make some noise as they move. The course is 1 mile in length and takes participants through downtown St. Albans while enjoying all the holiday lights. NEW THIS YEAR: The event will begin and end in Taylor Park! Trophies will be awarded for best holiday costumes!

Santa will be on hand giving out candy canes and listening to the little ones wish list, a DJ will be playing some festive holiday music and there will be hot chocolate as well!

The Running of the Bells will benefit Operation Happiness. Participants are encouraged to bring donations of canned goods and toys for Franklin and Grand Isle County families in need. There will be a vehicle available in Taylor Park to place canned goods and toys in.
