This is the 4th annual Ugly Sweater Run! Runners start their holiday adventure at the beautiful Arcata Marsh and choose between a 1-mile fun run and a 5k, all while wearing their most festive (ugly) holiday sweater! Proceeds for this super fun event go to Humboldt Educare Preschool, Humboldt's only non-profit preschool for almost 40 years. Run Ugly Have Fun!
