A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for areas west of Omaha until 11 p.m.; however, the metro area will likely have thunderstorms on and off throughout the overnight.
The Ugly Sweater Run is coming to Omaha this weekend. It kicks off at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, December 16th at the Century Link Center.
The start line features snow machines, reindeer games, and awesome holiday music. Anyone can participate, the dress code is an ugly sweater, and by the end, runners are able to go sledding, provided with hot chocolate and Sam Adams Winter Lager for those of age.
The run, which isn't timed, is "less about speed and more about enjoying a crazy day with your friends and family," according to Jeff Suffolk, President of Human Movement Management, race series operators.
Each Ugly Sweater Run asks that every runner bring a new toy to donate to Toys for Tots following each race.
