Rummage up the Ugliest Sweaters you can find and celebrate the Holidays by participating in the best 5k of the year. Join thousands of runners and walkers from around the nation at a local Ugly Sweater Run near you. If you’ve never run a 5k before, this is a great way to burn some calories before receiving hot chocolate and a choice of Sam Adam’s Winter Lager, Boston Lager, or Angry Orchard Hard Cider. All you have to do is register online to join in the fun. All kids 8 and under are FREE. If they would like a hat and mustache, you can purchase a kids ticket during checkout for $10.

The run is approximately 3.1 miles long on city streets and through parks depending on the city. The start line will have huge inflatables, photo stations, and awesome holiday music. Once you’re on the course, you’ll find holiday themed stations at every mile. You can ditch that Gatorade because you’ll be able to replenish those electrolytes at the good ol’ fashioned hot chocolate station on the course.

After you’ve completed your run, join us at the post run festivities. This holiday 5k has everything your five-year old self would want with a few perks of adulthood. So after the race, take a much-deserved break from the shopping frenzy and celebrate your run with two free Sam Adams beer choices and other holiday goodies. Awards for best real mustache, best fake mustache, best beard, worst sweater, best sweater will follow the race.
