The Nichols Improvement Association (NIA) will hold the 24th annual Jingle Bell Run on Saturday, Dec. 7. This holiday classic is a scenic 5K course through the heart of historic Nichols with one of the best race finishes in Fairfield County. The race begins at 9:30 a.m., on the Nichols Green and continues through the Nichols community streets lined with friends and neighbors ringing jingle bells and cheering on participants. The morning includes the Jingle Bell Jr., a free kids fun run, starting at the Nichols Firehouse on Shelton Road at 9:15 a.m. Awards will be given to top finishers in each age category.
This year the NIA is also accepting non-perishable food donations for the Trumbull Food Pantry. Participants and spectators are encouraged to drop items off during early number pick-up and on race day to benefit those in need in our community.
