donít have an ugly Christmas sweater and I canít seem to find one. What
do I do?!
Ugly Christmas sweaters do seem to becoming more and more rare these days.
And with this race coming up, they are going to become more coveted each
year. I suggest you go to a local thrift shop or the Salvation Army, and
decorate it yourself. Have an ďUgly Christmas Sweater Making PartyĒ that
only the cool people get invited to. Be creative, and have fun!
inspired! Look for ideas.
celebrate Christmas. Can I still participate in this run?
Of course you can! People and ugly sweaters representing all faith (or no
faith) backgrounds are welcome!
Can my pet
Iím sure your pet would look lovely in an ugly Christmas Sweater, (mine
does) but unfortunately for safety reasons there are no pets allowed.
Are baby joggers, bikes, or wagons allowed on the course?
Due to liability reasons, no baby joggers, bikes, strollers, or wagons
are allowed on the race course. However, we do allow the use of devices

special awards to be given after the race.
Is there chip timing, jet
fly-overs, marching bands, professionally certified distances
measured by laser guided GPS satellites orbiting the Earth? No. The
