Oregon's Ugliest Sweater Run
Ugly Christmas sweaters have become a modern holiday tradition, and in that spirit they are the symbol of Oregon's Ugliest Sweater Run. Runners dressed in their gaudiest knits will run (or walk) a 5K course trimmed with garland and lights, stopping if they choose for photo ops at each of a dozen stations themed after the 12 Days of Christmas. Beginning in Alton Baker Park and finishing at 5th St. Public Market, the race will culminate in an after party as festive as the run itself. As a DJ plays holiday tunes, runners can sign up for fruitcake-eating and eggnog-chugging contests. Those without iron stomachs can still get into the competitive spirit by contributing to an attempt to claim the Guinness World Record for Largest Gathering of People Wearing Ugly Christmas Sweaters.
In lieu of paying for parking, you can bring an unwrapped toy or five non-perishable food items. However, cash payments will all be donated to three charities: Toys for Tots, Food for Lane County Food Drive, and the Foster and Adoptive Parent Association of Lane County. Like Santa's Christmas-Eve duties or Mrs. Claus's epic knitting circles, Oregon's Ugliest Sweater Run is an all-weather event.
