2019 Wrightsville Beach Jingle Bell Run Results

For 11 years, the Jingle Bell Run has been the signature fundraiser for the Wrightsville Beach Museum of History. Historic cottages and beautiful winter marshes are part of the scenery participants get to experience during this 3 mile race that benefits a special museum. This will be a celebratory, holiday event, so race participants are encouraged to dress in holiday apparel (Santa costumes, antlers, snow men, etc.). Dogs can also compete in the costume category! The museum wants to continue to build on the success of this wonderful community event for the town of Wrightsville Beach. Come be a part of it this December!

About the Cause

The mission of the Wrightsville Beach Museum of History is to serve the residents and visitors of Wrightsville Beach as a repository of the history of the beach, and to be a community resource. They cannot do the work they do without support from private sector establishments. Last year they moved a 1924 cottage to expand the museum campus and to save a unique example of vernacular architecture! Renovations are underway and they anticipate opening the new building in the spring of 2020.
