Steam Whistle - Do One Thing Really, Really Well

Ugly Sweater Run | Coquitlam

The Ugly Sweater Run™ is hitting Town Centre Park on November 23rd! $5 from your race registration fee goes towards The Ugly Christmas Sweater Day Fundraising Campaign in support of The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada. Feel good about your contribution to granting the wishes of children living with life-threatening illnesses. 

Rummage up the Ugliest Sweaters you can find and celebrate the Holidays by participating in the best 5k of the year.  Join thousands of runners and walkers from around North America at a local Ugly Sweater Run near you. If you’ve never run a 5k before, this is a great way to burn some calories before receiving hot chocolate and a drink with your registration. All you have to do is register online to join in the fun. All kids 8 and under are free!

The run winds its way throughout Town Centre Park, around the beautiful Lafarge Lake. The start line will have huge inflatables and awesome holiday music. Once you’re on the course, you’ll find holiday themed stations. You can ditch that Gatorade because you’ll be able to replenish those electrolytes at the good ol’ fashioned hot chocolate station on the course.

After you’ve completed your run, join us at the post run festivities.  This holiday 5k has everything your five-year old self would want with a few perks of adulthood. So after the race, take a much-deserved break from the shopping frenzy and celebrate your run and other holiday goodies. Awards for Ugliest Christmas Sweater, Most Original Sweater, best group costume, best moustache & Spirit Champion Award for the individual who shows the most spirit!
