Medford Ugly Sweater 5K


December 9, 2023 | 9AM | Downtown Medford


We are so excited to keep Medford Ugly Sweater 5K alive and continue to support the Jackson County Foster Parent Association. The JCFPA works to improve the lives of so many foster children and gives meaningful support to foster, adoptive and relative families. It is an honor to host this event that gives back to such an incredible association. So, start dusting off those ugly sweaters, folks! This year, the run will take place on December 9th in downtown Medford.

What to Bring?

Bring your race confirmation with you (having it on your phone works too!) and a form of an I.D.

If you are picking up a packet for a friend or your team, make sure you are the team captain OR they have forwarded you their race confirmation. We encourage teams to have one person pick up!

Other Details:

Be sure to have your race bib attached to the front of your ugly sweater and visible for our start-line checkers to see. 


This is a holiday fun run and will not be timed. We encourage those who are running (and still competing against themselves) to move towards the front and the walkers more towards the back of the line.


As you come into the finish line, grab your complimentary water bottle then head over to get your breakfast, and get your ugly sweater photographed in at the West Orthodontics Photo Booth!


Get social with us! Share all of your race day photos using #medforduglysweater5k

Most importantly, strut that ugly sweater with all you got! We cannot wait to see you out there!
