The Patrick Dimpsey Merry Christmas Fun Run has been held at 12:30 AM on December 25th since the beginning of time (2009). The event consists of a 3 mile run through the great city of Roselle, IL. Some people call it the single greatest moment in human history, but here at the PDMCFR we call it the

"True Meaning of Christmas".

I don't live in Roselle, but I want to participate!

You don't have to live in Roselle to participate in the PDMCFR.  Runners who live out of state simply need to go for a run at 12:30AM CT. Make sure to send me (pdmcfr@gmail.com) your address and a picture or video of you heading out to enjoy the PDMCFR ASAP!.  That way I can send you a gift bag and put your picture or video in one of my videos  Even if you're not here (gesture around me), the important part is you are right here (point to heart).


How much does it cost to participate in the PDMCFR?

Road races often have a registration fee.  Here at the PDMCFR, due to generosity and a little Christmas magic, we have come up with a reasonable rate.
