Ugly Sweater Run

It doesn’t matter if you’ve already been indulging yourself for the holidays, because this run is not a race! It’s simply a chance to get some fresh air with a festive group of people… and reward yourself with free treats afterward. Ugly sweaters are optional, but, c’mon, why wouldn’t you wear one? Participants show up 15 minutes before the run for a group picture, and then take off for either a 2.5-, 5- or 7-mile run. (This year, there’s an option for a 5-mile trail run, too). No matter when you finish, you’ll be rewarded with “holiday treats” from Shiraz Bakery; coffee, tea and hot cocoa from Panera Bread; sparkling energy drinks from Phocus; smoothie and shake samples from Broadway Nutrition; and a raffle with multiple prizes. Kids and dogs are welcome. —Danielle Grady
