IT’S THE MERRIEST 5K OF THE YEAR! The Ugly Sweater Run comes to Soldier Field on Dec. 16th, with a Lakefront course and plenty of holiday cheer. 

Dive head first into your closet and grab the UGLIEST sweater you own. The Ugly Sweater Run presented by Kahlúa, benefitting One Warm Coat combines the festive flair of tacky sweater parties with fitness. Join thousands of other dancers, prancers, and 5K dashers for a jolly good time filled with holiday music, photo stations, and even inflatables! Or lead the way, like the Rudolph that you are, with the brightest n' ugliest sweater you can find! Once you run to the finish line like a kid on Christmas morning, celebrate your epic calorie-burn like an adult! Each runner gets a complimentary Kahlúa cocktail (21+) or hot chocolate. Also, did we mention you get a sweet hat? Warm up your run with a festive knitted event cap, while looking oh-so-ugly sweater cool. But just because you're done doesn't mean you can't still have fun! Party at the finish line festival, snap a photo at the "Larger-Than-Life" Snow Globe and watch (even win!) awards for your zany attire. So grab your best-knitted disaster and bring your festive spirit to The Ugly Sweater Run - guaranteed to become your new favorite tradition. 
  • YOUR DASH: 3.1 Miles of Holiday Fun
  • YOUR CHEER: Entries include a finisher's medal, knitted Ugly Sweater hat, and a complimentary post-race Kahlúa cocktail (21+) or hot cocoa.
  • YOUR ELVES: Ages 5 and under are FREE! You can even bring your strollers.
