Race Preview: 2015 Ugly Holiday Sweater Run (Free Race!)

Here's your excuse to break out that ugly Christmas sweater that your Aunt Hilda gave you 3 years ago, or an excuse to buy that hideous-looking sweater that is just too good to be true. The 4th Annual Ugly Holiday Sweater Run is just around the corner and it's FREE! This run benefits two great organizations and instead of charging you for the race, they are collecting donations for the Ladybug CDH Foundation and Reason To Run.

Reason to Run could use your donations of gently used running shoes and gear for newly released runners from Coffee Creek Correctional Facility. The Ladybug CDH Foundation is in need of items for families in the NICU like cotton receiving blankets, hats, socks, small stuffed animals, and journals.

Starting and finishing at Road Runner Sports in Tualatin, this untimed fun run 5K is a fun event for all ages. Ugly holiday sweaters of all kinds are highly encouraged. You are sure to see some creative costumes as well. Get creative with your ugly sweater and you could win the coveted ugly sweater trophy! Take a look here to see my recap of last year’s race including a photo of the winner with the trophy.

You can expect a fun 5K, prize drawings, an ugly sweater contest, and a warm dry location before and after the race. And don’t forget to bring your donation items to help these two wonderful organizations that are helping others – from newborns and their families to women within a correctional facility.
