Any winter fun run that touts inflatables at the start line, holiday themed stations every mile and hot cocoa at the end is a run that gets my attention.
Let’s break out those tacky sweaters – the most unique and 5K coming up this holiday season is The Ugly Sweater Run. It’s coming to Omaha Sunday, Dec. 14,. at 11 a.m. starting from the CenturyLink Center.
Come with a sense of humor and your most creatively adorned sweater for this one.
It’s their third year in Omaha so it’s high time I joined in the fun. I heard this race is very family friendly, so I’m going to throw some layers under some ugly sweaters and bring my family along (barring majorly bad weather).
While the idea of being outdoors in Omaha in December isn’t tantalizing, I’m open to thinking this could be the start a family tradition!
Plus, kids kids under 5 can run for free! So I’m saving money already.
If you like your 5Ks done without carrying around a 40-pound child, this one is fun for especially fun for adults. Post-race festivities include your choice of one Sam Adams beer and holiday goodies, plus awards for best real mustache, best fake mustache, best beard, worst sweater and best sweater.
