January 22, 2021 – Downtown Midland invites people of all ages and abilities to bring out their holiday sweaters and “jingle their own way” with a free After the Holidays Edition of the annual Jingle Bell Fun Run/Walk.

Between Sunday, January 24 and Sunday, January 31 customers can stop by Ace Hardware & Sports (419 E Main St.) to pick up one of four route maps and a free jingle bell necklace. From there, participants can complete the run/walk on their own time.

The four map routes include a map for a one mile run for serious runners, a map for kids to complete with their parents, a map to “treat yourself” with downtown retailers, and a map for food lovers to “tickle their taste buds”. Participants are encouraged to check locations’ business hours online before they set out to complete the fun run/walk. 

“We were saddened to cancel the annual Jingle Bell Fun Run/Walk in December, so we decided to bring it back in a different way in January,” said Downtown Events Coordinator Melissa Farley. “We hope this event is a fun way for people to get out of the house and explore all that our Downtown District has to offer this winter.”

Participants who post a photo of themselves to social media during the Jingle Bell Fun Run/Walk using the hashtag #downtownmidlandmi will be entered to win prizes courtesy of Ace Hardware & Sports. Winners will be announced February 1 on the Downtown Midland, Michigan Facebook page.
