Mini Race Preview: Ugly Sweater Fun Run, Medford Or

It’s that time of year again, ugly sweaters are in style and when you mix it with a 5k you have an event that is fun for the whole family. The Ugly Sweater Fun Run 5k in Medford is the latest and greatest.

This out and back 5k will give you the opportunity to show off that sweater and help out a good cause in the process. Runners will head out and circle through Bear Creek Park before returning to the start at Rogue Community College.  Part of the proceeds will go to benefit children in the Jackson County Foster Parent Association. This is an all age event and jogging strollers are allowed (those in stroller no fee). Follow the race on Facebook here for updates.
