Ugly Holiday Sweater 5k
It’s time to pull out that ugly holiday sweater and sign up for the Vail Rec District’s annual Ugly Sweater 5K Fun Run in Lionshead. Santa sweaters, hats and any kind of holiday flair will do in this non-competitive run or walk through Lionshead on Saturday morning.
Get up early and register starting at 7:30 a.m. in front of Bart and Yeti’s restaurant. The Fun Run begins at 8:30 a.m. It’s $6 to take part in the event if you bring a food donation, a new, unwrapped toy or diapers. This event benefits The Community Market and local toy drives.
The race route will start and finish at Bart & Yeti’s in Lionshead. Choose from a 5K option or a one-mile run option. The 5K course is approximately three miles long, weaving in and around Lionshead and Vail Village. Once again, Santa Claus will be leading the charge on fat bike as he takes runners through town. Dogs on leashes are welcome along with strollers, wagons, or any other way to get your group out there and moving.
Don’t be afraid to show some flair for this event, the costumes are pretty amazing and the creativity is top notch. The races ends early enough that you can still hit the hill for skiing or riding, or go to the after party at Bart and Yeti’s. To register in advance or more information, go to VailRec.com.
