2009 Ugly Christmas Sweater Run a Huge Success!
A huge thank you to all who helped and participated in this years ugly Christmas Sweater Fun Run!
Runners Tim Fromm, Andrea Cichosz, Brian Newsome, and Anita Fromm were greeted with a light snow as they ran through the sidewalks of Manitou, enjoying the beautiful holiday lights.
Andrea won the women's running division, while Tim and Brian tied for first in the mens. As far as who had the ugliest holiday sweater contest, well... it was quite the fashion show down!. Andrea showed up in a red, beaded, what appeared to be rein deer ensemble, while Brian's bright red sweater with the huge Christmas tree complete with shoulder pads made for an unforgettable fashion statement. Anita's mismatched beige, snowflake turtleneck sweater and red holiday vest with reindeer heads and green buttons and fuzzy pink Santa hat screamed "fashion alert!". Her long suffering husband Tim made it clear that he was more into running than fashion, but still wore the stupid green and red reindeer antlers that his wife made him wear.
We sincerely hope that next year this becomes an official, family friendly running event, supporting local businesses and charities.
