KAWARTHA LAKES: Save the date of November 27th because it is time for the 12th Annual Lindsay Jolly Jog!


The Jolly Jog is a festive and family-friendly event which encourages you to bring the whole family for a 5K walk or run around Lindsay.


Participating in Jolly Jog has never been easier! Jog 5K your way when you sign up, as either a virtual or an in-person jogger. As well, new to Jolly Jog is the Jolly Squad! When you register, create your own Jolly Squad so your friends, family, or coworkers can join it, and you can all participate together.


No matter which option you choose, you can participate in all the Jolly Jog fun! Our Best Festive Dress Competition will still run through our social media, so be sure to upload your costume by 2 p.m. on November 27th to be entered to win. Prizes will be given for Best Dressed Individual, Group, Family Unit, and Pet, as well as a special prize for Most Funds Raised!


Registration is free, so make sure to grab your spot in the run, but we do encourage financially able participants to donate $20 per jogger, as that amount is eligible for a charitable tax receipt. Donations are hoped for, as Kawartha Lakes Food Source is fundraising to support those in our community who are facing food insecurity.


“Kawartha Lakes Food Source has had an extremely busy year, so we think the community deserves a Jolly ole time right now,” said Kate Dorotheou, Community Engagement Coordinator at KLFS. “What could be better? A day dedicated to combating hunger, combined with the festive spirit of the season! Plus, the costumes are always a pleasure to see!”
