Do I need to be some kind of super runner to be in this race?
No way! There are loads of other great 5Ks out there to test speed and performance.
The Ugly Sweater FUN Run is just about spending a great time with friends and family (and also a chance to burn off a few Thanksgiving calories from the week before). You can run, walk, skip, crawl, or dance if you wanna!
Can I register on race day?
There’s limited space available at this race. If it’s NOT sold out, we will be offering day of event registration. But you should probably go ahead and just sign up now.
How does a team work compared with a solo runner?
You register as a team (2 people minimum) rather than as an individual. You get to pick a cool custom team name, anything from “2 Tacky 4 U” to “Santa’s Little Helpers.” You then get to run/walk together and help each other get really tacky and ugly throughout the 5K course. There is no “relay” component, and team members can finish together as a unit or separately.
What is included with my Ugly Sweater Fun Run registration?
- Custom Ugly Sweater Fun Run Knit Hat (If you register by Nov. 7th!)
- 5K of fun!
Who does it benefit?
We are a local, for-profit company that partners with local charities. The Ugly Sweater Fun Run will be benefiting FUEL of Clarksville. To learn more about them, go to www.fuelforkids.org
Can I push a jogging stroller and/or run with my kids?
Absolutely! Just make sure you’ve been eating your Wheaties! Don’t forget to gussy up your stroller with something ugly too!
All kiddos 12 and under can run with an adult FREE of charge and do not need to register. Unregistered children do not receive a race packet.
Can I run with my dog/cat/parrot?
For the safety of our runners, spectators and animal friends, we do not allow animals at any of our races.
Is there an age limit for younger runners?
No age limits! If they can cover (running, jogging, walking, strolling) the three miles of The Ugly Sweater Fun Run course, they can absolutely participate! Remember, though, as soon as they turn 13 they will need to register and have a race bib!
Is this a timed run?
Nope. If you wanna run fast go for it, but this is a fun-run and is about burning a few post-Thanksgiving calories while having a blast with friends and family.
How do I transfer my registration to another person?
You can transfer your registration to someone else up to one week prior to the event. In order to transfer registrations, you need to send us the name you registered under and the name, contact info, email, of the person to whom the registration will be transferred to and. We will then take care of the rest.
Is there a race packet pick up for the event? How does all that work?
Yes. Details on when and where will be posted on our Facebook page and website, the week of the race as well as emailed to all registered runners approximately 10 days before the event.
Can someone else pick up my packet for me?
You bet! Send them with a printed or electronic copy of your confirmation email.
Are there refunds?
Sorry, no. If the event is held as advertised, we cannot issue refunds. The logistics of setting up and planning the event make it impossible. Just make sure you are good to go before signing up. If for some reason you can’t make it to race day, at least come by and get your race packet and say hi!
