Run, walk, or stroll in your ugliest (or finest) holiday sweater to support Humboldt Educare & spread cheer through the community!

Join in the holiday fun for the 5th annual (but 1st virtual) 1 mile, 5k or 1/2 marathon Ugly Sweater Run or walk.

Proceeds from the race will help directly fund opening up in our brand new location; including investing in outdoor play equipment, licensing fees, site preparation, sanitation supplies & other costs associated with running a play-based non-profit preschool.

1 Mile Walk/Run : Worried your child won’t want to walk 3 miles with you? This might be for you. We're working on suggested routes, or simply step out your front door wearing your holiday finest for a fun family walk.

5K Run : Great for runners and walkers. We will provide both family friendly courses and have some suggested course from our running community.

1/2 Marathon Run : Have a Sunday long run planned? This year we're introducing a 3rd option! Why not run for a good cause and spread some cheer in your finest ugly holiday sweater! 

To add a little fun, you'll be able to log your run times and be eligible for prizes!  Don't forget to join our dedicated FB group page - Ugly Sweater Run 2020 where we can share images... prizes will be given for best dressed and other categories.

In a year like none other, the Humboldt Educare board of directors is looking for fun and creative ways to maintain an annual community tradition, get into the holiday spirit and fundraise.

This year, we are inviting all of our friends, family and neighbors -- near and far -- to join in the fun. We may not be able to gather at the start line, but we won’t let COVID-19 prevent us from finding new ways of coming together to support our school. 

Donate online or register to join us during 5th Annual (Virtual) Ugly Sweater Run, December 18  - 27th, 2020. 

And remember...

Run Ugly, Have Fun!
