Finally, an excuse to wear that hideous reindeer sweater grandma got you.

It’s time to search for the world’s tackiest holiday sweater and run like you’re running to a big pile of presents on Christmas morning. Why? The Ugly Sweater Run is making its way back to Philly on Saturday, December 19th.

This 5K brings you the best of the holiday season: bottomless hot chocolate, holiday tunes, a visit from Saint Nick himself, and a sprinkle of (machine-made) snow. Plus, you can finally put that hideous sweater your grandma gave you last year to good use. And you’ll win a prize if it’s the ugliest of the ugly! And because it’s not the holidays without a beer (or 10), after crossing the finish line, those over 21 can enjoy a free Sam Adams Boston or Winter Lager or, for the gluten-free folks, an Angry Orchard Hard Cider.

Registration costs $40 and gets you all that good stuff plus a knit hat to keep your head warm. Proceeds benefit Save the Children. You can find more information and register here.
