About This Event
5K is one paved loop and 10K is 2 loops. Runners will start at pavilion 3 in McAllister Park and Run on paved bike paths and finish at the pavilion. We will have leprechauns starting ahead of the even that must be captured if you want a nice little St. Patty's prize. The little Scottish rascals can be fast but could be hiding in the trees, so it is up to the runner to out smart the mythological beasts from Ireland or Scotland or wherever they are from. There will also be an Ice Chest o' Gold that must be sought. This all is going on while you are trying to run a fast 5K, so if you are not strong at multitasking you should not participate in this event. Post race party will include beer, water, Quench, and other refreshments as well as corned beef and cabbage done the Scottish way.
Corned Beef and Cabbage Post Race Party!!!!
This bash will feature beer (of course), other refreshments, and a corned beef and a cabbage boil that will make all of Scottland and Ireland proud.
