Starting at the convention center this 5k loops around the Willamette river and back. The starting line will have huge inflatables, photo stations, and holiday music. There will be holiday themed stations at every mile, and the aid station will have hot chocolate and water. Following the run back at the convention center there is more fun, with one free beer per entrant and other holiday goodies. There is also going to be a contest for: Best real mustache, best fake mustache, best beard, best sweater and of course ugliest sweater. This run is not timed and is just for fun so no awards will be handed out.
The Ugly Sweater Run benefits Save the Children which is a trusted organization. Save the Children invests in childhood – every day, in times of crisis and for our future.
