The 2019 Ugly Sweater 5K Fun Run takes off through Lionshead Village on Saturday morning.
The non-competitive race will start and finish at Bart and Yeti’s in Lionshead beginning at 8:30 a.m. The course is approximately three miles, and the race will be followed by a lively after-party at the restaurant.
Prizes will be awarded for best outfits by individuals, teams, dogs and kids. Santa Claus will be leading runners through town on a bike, and participants will encounter fun aid stations and challenges along the route. Battle Mountain High School Choir will be serenading the runners and spectators with holiday tunes during the race.
Entry is free with donation of food or a new, unwrapped toy for our charitable partners.
