Welcome to The Ugly Sweater Run™ Lawrence, Kansas!
The Ugly Sweater Run™ is hitting the streets of Downtown Lawrence on December 1st, 2012 at 2:00 pm.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Ugly Sweater Run™ is an event for everyone. If you want to wear spandex under your sweater and race fast, that’s cool, but you’re missing the point. If you’ve never run a 5k before, this is a great way to burn some calories before slamming hot chocolate and Winter Lager. All you have to do is register online at www.active.com to join in the fun.
The run is approximately 3.1 miles long on city streets. Runners and walkers dress up in their worst holiday sweaters, maybe have some holiday drinks before lining up at the start line. The start line will have snow machines, reindeer games and awesome holiday music. Once you’re on the course, you’ll find holiday themed aide stations every mile – EG – Sled hills (yes, you can stop running and go sledding), Hot Chocolate aide stations, Christmas Trees lining the streets and more snow (Yes, even you Las Vegas, we’re bringing the snow!)
After you’ve completed your 3.1 jog (sounds like yawg, it’s a new thing that people are doing now, yawgging), join us at the post run festivities. Awards for best real mustache, best fake mustache, best beard, worst sweater, best sweater and general amazing holiday fun. Oh yea, Sam Adams will be pouring adult beverages for the oldies and the kiddos can get all hopped up on Hot Chocolate and go sledding next to the stage.
Ummm…we recommend wearing an Ugly Sweater, grow a mustache if you can (if not, we’ll give you one) and show up ready to party with your friends on the coolest run in the country.
You must bring your ID and be of age to consume adult beverages. That’s it for the rule section.
