Northwest Running and Triathlon Calendar - November 2013 - Ugly Christmas Sweater Run!
Very small slate of races this week. The amount of Thanksgiving Day races has become so HUGE that it sucks all the races away for weeks on either side of Turkey Day. No one wants to fight the onslaught of what has become the biggest single race day of the year.
That said, there are a couple of fun races on board this week:
-First, we've got what has to be the earliest Jingle Bell Run in the entire country. Spokane's Jingle Bell Run, which takes place nearly two weeks before Thanksgiving!
-Then we have, OF COURSE, the Ugly Sweater Run! Yes, break out those hideous sweaters that Grandma sent you back in college. And wear it proudly.
-Read about that magnificent sweater in the photo right here. Look at those deer!
