The 30th annual Boley Centers Jingle Bell Run took off from the St. Pete Pier at 7 p.m. Friday night. It was a great night, with more than 5,000 people participating in the race. The course begins on the Pier and runs along the waterfront to North Shore Pool and then back to the Pier.
Weather was great, and the crowd was ready for a good time. There was live music at the Pier and along the route. There were lots of families, kids, dogs and serious runners.
Downtown St. Pete is a great venue for these running events, and the City does an outstanding job hosting the runners. Theresa and I were there and so was St. Pete PATCH editor William Mansell and his new wife running in the event. See if you can find them in my photo gallery.
Attached is my photo gallery of the event.
