The Ugly Sweater Run is happening in Denver on Dec. 20, 2013 and you can still enter. Find the ugliest sweaters you can find and compete with your friends and neighbors by participating in this worst dressed 5k of the year. If you are a newbie to 5k's this will be a perfect one to try. You'll warm up on the run, be provided with bottomless hot chocolate and at the end a choice of Sam Adam’s Winter Lager, Boston Lager, or Angry Orchard Hard Cider. Register online here. 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.

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 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.

Race "rules" are pretty lose.. wear an ugly sweater, grow a mustache if you can and if not one will be provided for you. Bring your ID to prove your age if you are going to take advantage of the frosty brews at the end of the run.

Every participant is asked to bring a new toy to donate under the huge Christmas Tree. All toys will be donated following the run to the Denver Toys For Tots chapter.
