Ugly Sweater Run @ St. Vincent de Paul H.E.L.P. Center
Dec 3 @ 10:30 am – 1:30 pm
Last year was so fun, let’s do it again!
It’s that time of the year… parties, too much food and drink, and of course ugly Christmas sweaters! Trail Maniacs would like to combine those time honored traditions AND we’ll even throw in a little help for those less fortunate. We are having an Ugly Sweater run. This event is free, but we are accepting gently used jackets, coats, sweaters and blankets for those in need.
Starting at the St. Vincent parking lot at 201 E Harrison Ave, Coeur d’Alene, ID 83814. We will run 3 to 5 mile (route will depend on weather conditions). Route will most likely include Government Way to the Centennial Trail for an out and back.
After we will finish at Daft Badger Brewing for some refreshments and a contest for best dressed runner! Voting will start at Daft Badger at 11:30. We will update prizes, but we will have a prize for overall male and female best ugly sweater! Best of all Daft Badger will be offering $1.00 off pints for anyone wearing an ugly sweater!
