RUN Announces the Nevada Ugly Christmas Sweater Run on December 11

Participants in the Nevada Ugly Christmas Sweater Run will receive a themed long sleeve t-shirt as part of their registration.

To cap off a monstrously successful 2021 running season, which saw previous participation levels shattered for every existing event and several highly popular new events, Runners United Nevada is excited to announce the Nevada Ugly Christmas Sweater Run on Saturday, December 11, as part of Main Street Nevada’s Christmas On Main celebration. This will be a one mile, untimed run for all skill levels – runners and walkers alike!

Participants will be encouraged to dress in the most ridiculous, outlandish ugly sweater attire they can come up with. Prizes will be awarded for the best entries!

Participants will receive a themed long sleeve t-shirt. The race will begin on 6th Street between K Avenue and Lincoln Way. Packet pick up will be at 1:30, with the run beginning at 2:00. All proceeds will benefit Nevada Firefighters, Inc.
