Race Results


Get out of the summer heat and run underground at Meritex Executive Park where the average year-round temperature is 68 degrees. There are no hills and the course never ventures outside. The route is flat, festive, and fun! There will be plenty of fun activities for the whole family at Jingle in July Run/Walk including a holiday lights hallway, photo booth and appearances by jugglers, a magician and Santa!

Wear a holiday themed costume. Tie jingle bells to your shoelaces. Raise funds to help find a cure for arthritis, the nation's leading cause of disability. Run or walk a 5 kilometer route with your team members and celebrate the summer by giving!


Meet Our Youth Honoree
Jacen Heafner


Jacen was faced with a sudden onset of uveitis when he was just four years old. His diagnosis process was long and it took a while for doctors to diagnose him with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), with chronic uveitis. Now, Jacen is 11 years old and would like to be able to play football. His doctors and parents encouraged him to find a less impactful sport, so Jacen has grown to love martial arts and even has a black belt in Krav Maga! Jacen really enjoys martial arts and sees how it helps control his arthritis. He went on to say, “Martial arts has helped me stay flexible and moving.”
