The Ugly Christmas Sweater Dash

Ugly Sweater Dash 2015 Port Moody

Save the date! On Saturday Dec 5, 2015 at 11:00am the Ugly Christmas Sweater Dash 5km returns to Tri-Cities. The event starts and finishes at Rocky Point Park in Port Moody and raises funds for the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. To money raised helps fulfill favourite wishes for children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Last year partiers helped raise $60,000 and create hope and happy memories for six children and their families.

The untimed fun run bills itself as “the most fun you can have with knitwear on.” It’s a lot more than that, though. You’ll find holiday music, craft breweries, and family entertainment. At the Dash, they will have a Finishers’ Festival with beer garden, Grandma’s Living Room Photo Booth, a live band and more. Plus, participants receive an authentic Ugly Christmas Sweater® Toque and all the hot chocolate they can drink.

Children and pets are welcome. Runners are welcome to bring a stroller. To quote the website: “Pushing 40lbs in wool, Sir, we salute you.” If you would like a toque for your little one, pay for a child’s registration.

If you and your friends enjoy running in ugly knitwear together, register as a team. Team captains sign up first and then invite members to sign up. Registration is $40 for adults and $10 for kids 8 and under whether you run with a team or on your own.
