The annual run/walk and fun run benefits Niceville High School Track and Field, and C.A.L.M. House in Niceville.
The 2018 Ugly Sweater 5k Run is among the local events ushering in the Christmas season in Niceville. It will take place on Saturday, December 8, 9 a.m., in Bluewater.
The race will start and finish at Hurricane Grill and Wings. The 5K Run and Walk is open to all ages. It begins at 9 a.m., and the 1-mile fun run for children 12 and under begins at 10 a.m.
There will be chances to win prizes with raffles and a costume contest (while the theme is “Ugly Christmas Sweater,” your most festive holiday outfit will do nicely). Join others in the community for fun, music, and tackiness at this USA Track & Field sanctioned event.
