Ugly Sweater 5k

December 7, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Whether you raided grandma’s closet, hit up the local thrift stores or purchased your ugly sweater somewhere else, all sweaters are welcome at the Ugly Sweater 5k on Saturday, December 7. Race starts at 4:15 p.m. Make sure to bust out your favorite one—especially if it has reindeer, poinsettias, snowflakes or even a misshapen Santa—because the best sweaters will be in the running to win a prize.

We’ll be spreading verve at the beginning and halfway through the race, come find us. Those registered will receive hand warmers, refreshing water, glow sticks and a little music and dancing to keep them motivated all the way to the finish.

Bring your holiday spirit and a friend or two to run or walk through beautifully lit running trails towards the Rotary Lights where more than two million holiday lights are displayed and complete your workout through a dazzling light tunnel! Register before Friday, November 27 to get $10 off the registration price. The first 500 registrants will also receive an Ugly Sweater 5k commemorative gift.
