Ugly Sweater Run™

The Ugly Sweater Run is an event for ALL AGES. 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 to join in the fun. All kids 8 and under are free and no need to register them online!

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 (weather permitting), Hot Chocolate aide stations, Christmas Trees lining the streets and more snow (Yes, even you Las Vegas, we’re bringing the snow!) Strollers and dogs are welcome!

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 other 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.
