Rummage up the Ugliest Sweater you can find and celebrate the Holidays by participating in the Merriest 5K of the year. Join thousands of runners, walkers and prancers from around the nation as The Ugly Sweater Run tours North America. If you’ve never participated in a 5K, this is a perfect way to burn some calories, have some fun and immediately replace those calories with a warm hot chocolate, and a Kahlúa cocktail. All you have to do is register!
The run is approximately 3.1 miles, through city streets and scenic parks. The start line includes massive inflatables, photo stations, games and the most cheerful holiday music. Join us at the finish line and ride our new mechanical reindeer, take a family photo in a larger than life snow-globe, run through our fake snow and so much more!
Once you’ve completed the merriest run of your life, join us for some post-event festivities. We have everything your five-year old self could want with a few perks of adulthood. Take a much-deserved break from the shopping frenzy, and celebrate your sweater filled day with a Kahlúa cocktail, and other holiday goodies. Awards for Best Ugly Sweater, Best Kids Sweater, Best Pet Attire and Best Real/Fake Mustache/Beard will be declared. Register now and join us for a truly unforgettable tradition!
We suggest arriving in the ugliest of ugly sweater you can find, hand in hand with your best friends. Other than that, no official rules apply and it’s fun for all ages!
Must bring ID to receive adult beverage and no bad attitudes. That’s a given.
Does it get any better than this? Why yes, it does!Besides the best day of your life, each participant will receive a new custom Ugly Sweater Run knit hat, an awesome finishers medal, a complimentary cocktail provided by Kahlúa, a 5k course full of holiday cheer and an after party like no other! Don’t miss the opportunity to take the best holiday photo at our larger than life snow-globe, in front of our massive fire place or with our 40′ tall Santa!
All included with your entry to what my grandmother has dubbed “The best and only reason I would let you take my christmas sweater from the basement.”
