Review of The Sweater Dash by

Posted by: on January, 6 2014

Did this race because I got a great deal on-line from one of those on-line sites. Thought it would be interesting wearing an ugly sweater for a race. It made for a festive event seeing everyone in ugly Christmas sweaters. It was nice that parking was free at Anaheim stadium. You can pick up your package on race morning for an additional $5 each which isn’t that bad. There were pre-race festivities where you can take your picture in front of a wall board with snow on the ground. Plus Santa was there too so you can take pictures with Santa in your ugly sweater.

It was a wave start here. The highlight of the course was that you got to go inside Anaheim stadium near the foul base line. Many participants were taking pictures inside the stadium. Once you went through the stadium, the rest of the course was through the Anaheim stadium parking lot to make the course around 3 miles. A little boring here. It was not timed, so you can do as much or as little as you wanted. When you finished, you got an ugly sweater ornament. Plus you got a 4 oz jar of apple cider. It was nice to do this race once but won’t come back.
