The Ugly Christmas Sweater movement in Vancouver raises money in support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of BC & The Yukon, which grants wishes for children with a critical illness. With each dollar raised, you support giving hope, strength and joy to children, their families and their communities.

Adults Early Bird - $45 (EXTENDED: closes Nov. 10th!)
Adult Regular - $55
Youth (Ages 9 - 18) - $35
Your registration includes an authentic Ugly Christmas Sweater® Toque and all the hot chocolate you can drink.
Kids 8 and under – FREE (add an authentic Ugly Christmas Sweater Toque for $20)

Grab your ugly Christmas sweater, your friends, and your runners and we’ll see you at the start line!


I have registered. What happens next? 
You'll receive an email confirmation, acknowledging registration. That email contains further instructions, as well as a link to help you set up a pledge campaign if you want to! We have GREAT incentive prizes for folks who want to raise even more for Make-A-Wish! Think restaurant, hotel and local merchant gift certificates!  Rather pledge the old fashioned way? no problem. You'll find a pledge form and helpful tips, right here. 

For every $25 you raise in pledges, your name will be entered in a draw to win one of the following prizes: 

And, for every $100 in pledges you receive, we'll give you a shiny new Klean Kanteen Make-A-Wish stainless steel water bottle (while supplies last!) 

Can I bring my kids? 
The more, the merrier. All kids 8 and under are FREE. If you would like a toque for your child, purchase at checkout for $20.

Can I bring a stroller? 
Yes, bring the stroller! Pushing 40lbs in a wool Christmas sweater for 5 km? We salute you.

Can I bring my pet? 
Yes, furry friends are welcome! 

How does the beer garden work? 
Nothing brings you back up to race day form like a craft beer available at the beer garden. Santa will be watching whether you’re naughty or nice, so the usual 19+ with two pieces of ID applies to everyone joining us in the beer garden.

Can my friends and family join after the event?
Yes, the Finisher's Festival is open to everyone

What is the dashing, walking, running, strolling etiquette?
We ask that runners keep left and walkers keep right. If you’re participating as part of a team, you may run en masse as a group or separately. The usual good manners regarding vehicle traffic and non-participating pedestrians applies. Friends and family are welcome to cheer you along the route.

Can I get a refund for my registration or transfer it to another person? 
Unfortunately, there is a NO refund and transfer of registration policy.

What are the parking and/or transportation options for getting to the event? 
Parking is limited. Please take transit or carpool if possible. If you're coming from further afield, take advantage of the new SkyTrain station opening December 2. Moody Centre Station is a 5 - 10 minute walk to Rocky Point Park and the start of the Dash. Parkside Brewery has generously volunteered use of their parking lot, but please note that space is limited there, too. 

Where do I attach my dash bib?
Attach your bib number on the front of your sweater so it is visible.

What if it rains? 
The event will run rain or shine… Or snow!
