About This Activity

RACE
RDV Sportsplex Jingle Run 5K promises a fun morning of holiday cheer! Participants are encouraged to put on their holiday best and wear jingle bells, costumes or even regular jogging clothes to walk, jog or run the tree-lined streets of Maitland Center. Since 1998 RDV Sportsplex has benefitted the Central Florida community and the Boys & Girls Clubs through its holiday run, raising more than $150,000 for the kids at the Joe R. Lee Branch in Eatonville. The 2017 event continues the tradition of giving to help inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. Join us!
