We have added a beer garden this year which will be open from 5-10pm.  Beer will be $5 each and we'll feature beer from Gravel Bottom Craft Brewing.  We've made a special nut brown bear specifically for the Yule Run and we're excited to try it with you.  Other beers will be available from Gravel Bottom as well.  You must be 21 and show a valid ID to enter the beer garden.  Cash and checks only please.



To support the PAWS with a Cause we're asking you to donate $2 if you wish to bring your dog to run/walk with you.  Remember to clean up after the pooch as well!

We love the lights so much and know you do too, so the course will take you twice through the Christmas Lite Show at Fifth Third Ballpark!




Spectators can watch the run from AJ's parking lot or by volunteering.  Spectators can line up along the Christmas Lite Show, but may not go through the display without paying the participation fee.




The Yule Run, I'll Walk would not be possible without the help of volunteers! Volunteer opportunities involve serving beer, registration, traffic control, water stations and more. If you are interested in volunteering please send an email to
