Dec. 11 Jingle Bell Jog: Also $40

Details of the Dec. 11 NYRR race in Prospect Park are up, and it's being used as a fund-raiser for the NYRR Youth Programs - hence the hefty entry fee.

The 4 mile race in Prospect Park costs $40 to enter at this point (compared to, say $18 for the Joe Kleinerman 10K the weekend before). Included in the entry fee is a technical T-shirt, and jingle bells.

Given the economy (and the thousands of other causes), it will be interesting to see how many people are willing to pay this (unless you've left your NYRR Q races to the last moment).

Do note, for Brooklyn folk, it's an excellent opportunity to get the volunteer opportunity in.

Why is a race called a "jog"?

Why is it a 4mile race? In Central Park the loop is 4 miles so it makes sense, but in Prospect Park the loop is approx 3.35 miles so a 5k is far more appropriate.
