Race Info
WestShore Plaza is hosting Tampa’s first official Ugly Sweater Holiday Run 5k on December 6th, 2020 in benefit of Finn’s Fighters (a local nonprofit whose mission is to increase awareness of pediatric cancer and support families facing medical crisis in the Tampa Bay area). Celebrate the holiday season with friends and family at a fun 5k Run/Walk at WestShore Plaza. First 400 finishers will receive the ugliest medal around! This is a GUN START and CHIP FINISH race. Overall winners will receive some amazing prizes and the race will conclude with an after party at the WestShore Plaza Irish31. There will be a virtual race option for those that cannot attend.
