Put on your ugly sweater and run to Citi Field this winter.

The home of the Mets will host the fourth annual Ugly Sweater Run on Dec. 20 at 11 a.m., run by the Colorado entertainment company Human Movement Management.

All participants of the 5K, whether runners or walkers, are encouraged to don their ugliest sweaters to celebrate the holiday season.

Throughout the 3.1-mile course, holiday-themed stations will serve hot chocolate to the runners. Other attractions include inflatables, photo stations and holiday music.

After crossing the finish line, participants over 21 can pick up two Samuel Adams beers to top it all off. All runners will receive a vintage knit hat.

Proceeds will go to Save the Children, an advocacy nonprofit that provides resources for young.
