The Ugly Sweater Run Presented By Kahlúa: Hartford

December 9, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm


The national Ugly Sweater Run series hits the streets of Hartford this holiday season!

The Ugly Sweater Run presented by Kahlúa is a national running series benefitting One Warm Coat. Register you, your friends and family for the Merriest 5k of the year coming to a city near you.

After you put the “sweat” in Ugly Sweater, join us at the official after party bar to keep the holiday cheer flowing!

Here’s how it works:

– Dig out the best/ugliest/most original holiday sweater you can possibly find (or make one!)
– Grab your friends and your running shoes
– Buy a ticket for your entry to the best holiday party of the year
– Come prepared at the start line to Put the Elf in Selfie! Run a 5k, take the best holiday photo of the year, shoot marshmallow guns, ride a mechanical reindeer, play in some fake snow, hang out in a life-size snow-globe, enjoy a complimentary Kahlúa cocktail (21+) and so much more!

What do you get?:

– Besides the best day of your life, each participant will receive a new custom Ugly Sweater Run knit hat, complimentary cocktails, a 5k course full of holiday cheer and an after party like no other! Don’t miss the opportunity to take the best holiday photo at our larger than life snow-globe, in front of our massive fireplace or with our 40′ tall Santa!

– Join us for post-run contests including Best Ugly Sweater, Best Kid Sweater, Best Pet Attire, Most Original Sweater, Best Team Outfits, Most Inappropriate Sweater, Best Family Outfits, Largest Group/Family, Best Beard, Best Fake Beard and Best Mustache (real or fake!).

See you at the Merriest 5K of the Year!

*Stick to the script. Drink Responsibly.
