About This Activity

Rummage up the Ugliest Sweater you can find and celebrate the Holidays by participating in the Alex Winter Fête Ugly Sweater 5K. Join hundreds of runners, walkers and prancers from around Central Louisiana.   If you’ve never participated in a 5K, this is a perfect way to burn some calories, have some fun and immediately replace those calories with a warm hot chocolate, a Fête-Nog or other tasty treats!

The run is approximately 3.1 miles, through city streets and the Historic Garden District. The start line includes snow globes, real snow, ice skating and the most cheerful holiday music. Once on course, you’ll find holiday themed stations at every mile. Ditch the traditional water or Gatorade as good ol’ fashioned hot chocolate will be stationed on course as refreshment.

Once you’ve completed the merriest run of your life, join us for some post-event festivities. We have everything your five-year old self could want with a few perks of adulthood. Take a much-deserved break from the shopping frenzy, and celebrate your sweater filled day. Awards for Best Male and Female Ugly Sweaters. Register now and join us for a truly unforgettable tradition!

All runners will receive a t-shirt.  Awards for top three males and females in each category and top three males and females overall.

Proceeds to benefit Manna House.  Since 1990, the Manna House has served over 3,000,000 meals to the poor, working poor, and homeless of all ages, ethnicities and religions.
