On December 9, 2017, the Fountain Valley YMCA is hosting our 9th annual Jingle Bell 5k and 1 Mile Kids’ Fun Run event in Fountain, Colorado at the Fountain Creek Regional Park/Trail.
The Jingle Bell 5k and 1 Mile Kids’ Fun Run, presented by Kaiser Permanente, is the eagerly anticipated Holiday event of the season and is a fundraiser for the YMCA.
TEAMS: You will be prompted during the registration process to sign up for a 5K team - you must have 4 or more participants to get the discount ($3 off per person)

Furry Friends are now welcome to run with their human friends! Must be leashed, current on shots, and well behaved. Human friends must pick up after furry friends. Furry friends will receive a rock'n bandana and a treat! All furry animals must run in the furry friendly wave. Don't worry, your time starts when you cross the starting line and end when you cross the finish line.
The 9th Annual YMCA Jingle Bell 5k presented by Kaiser Permanente is right around the corner and in true holiday fashion, we would like to say THANK YOU! This is going to be our biggest, best 5k yet and we couldn't do it without you!
