About This Activity

You don't want to miss out on participating in the 1st Annual Ugly Holiday Sweater 5K, hosted by the WVU School of Physical Therapy Class of 2016! This is a fun run/walk 5K, for individuals of all ages. We encourage individuals to go out and buy or create the ugliest holiday sweater possible, and then wear it on race day--The tackier the sweater, the better! There will be prizes for the following: Overall Ugliest Sweater, 1st Place Overall Female Runner, 1st Place Overall Male Runner, and winners of designated age groups. Individuals will have an opportunity to donate canned food items to the local food bank. For every canned food item donated, individuals will receive 5 tickets (Up to a maximum of 50 tickets/individual). These tickets can be entered to win one of several raffle prizes, featuring items from local Morgantown businesses.
The registration fee is $15.00 until September 30th. The fee will increase to $20.00 after that date, so be sure to sign up early! Race Day registration will be available for $20.00, but individuals will not be guaranteed a t-shirt. Proceeds will benefit the professional development of the Class of 2016, and a portion of the funds raised will be donated to the local food pantry.


Fee Includes: 1st Annual Ugly Holiday Sweater 5K race t-shirt, Swag bag featuring goodies and coupons from local Morgantown businesses, Post-race snacks, Race bib and safety pins, and a beautiful course that takes you on a tour of the WVU Evansdale campus.Those who register after November 15th can not be guaranteed a race t-shirt or swag bag, as we have limited supplies!

We will be using disposable chip timing provided by Smiles for Miles.
