Small Race Preview: 2019 West Linn Ugly Holiday Sweater Dash

The fun and festive Ugly Holiday Sweater Dash in West Linn is just around the corner on Saturday, December 14th. This fast 5k and 1 mile family fun run/walk starts and ends next to the Willamette Fire Station and takes participants through the historic Willamette area of West Linn.

There will be judges on course looking for the most epic-ly ugly sweaters, so come prepared! Also, the first 300 registrants will receive a commemorative Wonderful Ugly Holiday Sweater mug (sign up quickly for the mug, as there will be no race tee option at this event).

Strollers and leashed dogs are welcome and following the event will be the Holiday Parade, featuring Santa and a snow blizzard!
