Four State residents put on their Christmas sweaters and tennis shoes for the ugliest run of the year.
Starlit Running Company hosted their Annual Ugly Sweater 5K and Egg Nog Mile this morning.
Participants had the choice of running or walking in the kids half mile, the 5K, or the egg nog mile race.
