“It’s just an excuse to burn a couple calories, then drink a winter lager when you cross the finish line,” quips Jeff Suffolk, the president of Human Movement Management, which organized the Ugly Sweater Run.
The race starts at 9 a.m. today in City Park (look for the giant Santa, holiday trees, and thousands of people in ugly-ass sweaters). Get there as early as 7 a.m. to pick up your packet — including hat, mustache and pint glass — or, better yet, pick one up on Friday between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. at Lucky Pie, 1610 16th Street.
Registration is $35, or register as a team of four or more for just $30 each. For information, go to theuglysweaterrun.com.
