Ugly Sweater Run

December 5 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Inaugural Event – The Ugly Sweater Run offers an in-person, 5k and 10k at the Riveter in Mills River, NC on Saturday, December 5, 2020

Dust off those ugly sweaters and elf ears because it’s time to register for the Ugly Sweater Run! This in-person running event will take place in Mills River, NC at the all new Riveter, a premier indoor climbing gym, bike park, and wellness arena. Runners can choose from a 5K, 10K, or run both for the Ugly Sweater challenge. A Virtual option for each distance is also available. Holiday cheer is strongly encouraged!

The courses start at the Riveter and run along scenic and rural paved and farm roads, and return to the Riveter for even more merriment. There’ll be delicious food, drinks, and refreshments (including adult beverages and coffee), and plenty of activities including a premier bike park and a climbing wall. Chill out after the race and unwind at a socially-distanced flow, an indoor yoga class at the Riveter’s yoga studio.

The races include something for everyone! A 5k, 10k (double loop), and a Challenge event (triple loop)! Everyone gets a cozy, ugly-sweater t-shirt, a swag bag, and a finisher medal. All levels are welcome, so you can run a relaxed pace and take selfies, or run your heart out and get a finisher award.
