Come celebrate the transition from Thanksgiving to the Christmas season with a fun but competitive Syracuse Ugly Sweater 5K run at Onondaga Lake Park in Liverpool, NY. This year (5th Annual) the giveaway items will include a custom ugly sweater race shirt and a jingle bell bracelet that will add to the “spirit and sound” of the this years event. All finishers also receive a medal that doubles as Christmas tree ornament.

The race will be capped at 700 participants.

A portion of the proceeds and all donations will go to the Rescue Mission of Syracuse. Please bring winter clothing donations to the race. There will be a truck on location accepting items. They are especially seeking winter items ie. coats, boots, (sneakers as well) hats, mittens, socks and toiletries (tooth paste, tooth brushes, combs, etc.)

Ugly Sweater Contest

We ask that runners wear their favorite Ugly Sweater, prizes will be awarded for “best in dress”, most creative and most unique Ugly Sweaters (we will have vintage Ugly Sweaters available for purchase for $10 at packet pickup events and race day). There will be prizes for the overall race winners for both male and female (1st, 2nd, and 3rd) as well as Age Group winners as well.

Post Race Party & Raffles

After the race there will be an Ugly Sweater party at the Barking Gull including a free beer and a free food offering for race participants. General public is welcome to attend and the bar will be open. The Barking Gull is walking distance from the Start/Finish area.
