_ The 2023 Tacky Sweater 5k:

Welcome back to the tackiest sweater run ever! Christmas time in the south can be a white winter land or a sweatfest for those who choose to cozy up with an ugly sweater and run through the nature preserve at Lakewood! The course is a grass 5k race that runs through the nature preserve that includes two loops of 1.5 miles with a barn finish! Wear your TACKIEST SWEATER and join us for a fun run in the woods! The Preserve at Lakewood is a 120-acre parcel of land which features forest land, dirt trails, parking for 200, and of course, The Sustainability Education Center. The land is home to countless plant/animal species. Upon visiting, you can see red cedar and maple, hickory and flowering dogwood trees, white-tailed deer, eastern cottontail, woodchucks, box turtles, various types of mockingbirds, woodpeckers, blue jays and more.
