For irony’s sake, out of genuine nostalgia or the honest lack of fashion sense, we all have a hideously ugly sweater hidden somewhere deep in our closets. Well it’s time to pull that bad boy out, blow the dust off and don it with pride for this week’s Ugly Sweater Run! The 5K (3.1 mile) fun run aims to kickstart your holiday season with massive inflatables, photo stations, holiday games and goodies, cheerful holiday music, warm hot chocolate and a Samuel Adams beverage … Oh, and a little exercise. There will also be awards for best ugly sweater, best kids sweater and best real/fake mustache/beard and don’t forget to bring the pooch for a chance to win an award for best dog attire. You can register at the race the day of, but space will be limited so make sure to check out the website ASAP!
