ENID – America’s fastest growing sport, is making its presence in Oklahoma with “The Ugly Sweater Race.”

An “Ugly Sweater Race” takes the novelty of the age-old ugly sweater Christmas party idea and morphs it into a race.

Runners wear their ugliest holiday sweater, come out and race in hopes of winning money for their chosen charity.

The first male and female to finish will the donation as well as captain with the largest team and the runner with the most votes for ugliest sweater.

Runners aren’t required to race, but can enjoy running, walking or skipping to their family and friends.

The event is not only a run, but also a festive holiday event complete with hot cocoa provided for the runners instead of water stations, holiday tunes, and ugly sweater contest.

Toys will be collected for the Salvation Army.

This event echoes the holiday spirit with participants getting into the festive spirit by having fun while giving back to a charity.

All runners receive a free t-shirt and hot cocoa along with a change to be a part of a memorial race that is giving back and bringing awareness to several charities.

The date of this event is December 7th, 2013

Start time – The race takes off at 10:00 AM!
