Ugly Sweater Virtual Race

Anywhere, TN

Ugly Sweater Race is going virtual for 2020!

Whether you want to keep in shape during the holidays or just have some fun, we invite you to virtually join us for a jolly good time! With race options for everyone from one mile up to a half marathon, you can proudly wear your ugliest sweater and complete your race on your own time anytime after Thanksgiving through December 12th. All proceeds from the race will go to the Harrison Bay Friends Group to support the mission of Harrison Bay State Park - we hope that you enjoy the warm fuzzy feelings from your favorite sweater and the fact that you are supporting a great cause!


  • Runners who choose the swag package will get a long-sleeved race shirt & an ornament
    • Shirts this year will be red, cotton shirts with green lettering and design
    • If you would prefer not to have a shirt, you can opt out during the registration process and the cost of the shirt will be subtracted from your total price (less $12.50)
  • If you want to participate in the race, but don't need the swag, you can enter the race as a virtual-only runner for $10 with the discount code DONATION
  • All participants and their pets can enter the photo contests for a chance to earn some great prizes from our sponsors
