Ugly Christmas Sweater 5K and Brunch!

This 5K looks like a lot of fun and the perfect excuse to buy an Ugly Sweater. I created team name Chuck if you sign up under that team name you get $5 off. There may be other coupons floating around the web so do a google search before signing up!

Race starts at 11. They actually are giving out 2 free beers or cider after. Then we can go get brunch at a place TBD.

    Hey everyone my number is [masked]. Let's meet at 10:30 a.m. near Gear Check. Afterwards we'll try to grab brunch at Little Branch Cafe if the wait isn't too terrible. Since everyone probably runs at different paces let's re-meet up by the beer tent (we do get 2 free beers!). Right now I'm definitely Christmas pants. May or may not get a chance to get over to Ragstock to get an ugly sweater. Also I like being unconventional ;) See you then! This is gonna be a fun one!!!

    I think we should go to brunch somewhere away from the race. Last week we tried brunch after Hot Chocolate and everything was crazy busy. Any ideas for a brunch spot convenient to a bus or train?

      Looks good to me! It doesn't take reservations though so hopefully the wait isn't too long!

    Hey! I am super excited to run this weekend. Are we going to meet up anywhere before? Or just after. And there is a place in Lakeview called Ragstock that has Ugly Sweaters if any of you are still looking!!
