GENERAL RUN INFORMATION
ABOUT THE PJ5K
PajamaJams is pleased to announce the first annual PajamaJams “PJ5K” Pajama Run and Dance Party. This exciting, inaugural 5K pajama run (that’s right… run in your pajamas) is a kick-off for the 8th Annual “PJ’s for the Holidays” Pajama Drive. This year’s drive runs from December 3rd through December 16th, 2016.
Runners are encouraged to wear their pajamas during the race and to bring new pajamas to donate (we need boys and girls sizes 5T through Youth XXL).
The race will be one of our major fundraisers for the 2016 year. 100% OF THE FUNDS RAISED WILL HELP SUPPORT OUR PROGRAM THROUGHOUT THE HAMPTON ROADS COMMUNITY. Last year’s “PJ’s for the Holidays” Pajama Drive collected almost 1,500 pairs of pajamas thanks to our donors, partners and sponsors.
EVENT DETAILS & SCHEDULE
The 5K Pajama Run features a timed, flat course along the scenic Virginia Beach Oceanfront Boardwalk. All 5K runners will receive a unique medal and short sleeve t-shirt for their participation. Following the run, participants are invited to the post-race Pajama Dance Party to enjoy live music, food trucks, activities, games, and much more.
Race day registration starts at 8AM with the 5K race starting at 10AM. The post-race Dance Party with refreshments and entertainment will begin at 11AM.
