Sunday March 15th, 2020
Distance: 10K · 5K
The 2020 race was cancelled due to the Coronavirus. This run has been officially endorsed by St. Patty himself, who says:
“Think fast, flat, and as beautiful as me favorite four-leaf clover! In this festive event commemoratin’ yers truly, you’ll cruise along Independence Avenue and Ohio Drive, takin’ in gorgeous vistas of famous DC monuments and the glisnin’ Potomac River. (What would a St. Pat’s Day run be without vistas?!) And because St. Pat’s Day is about all things green, I personally required that the course include a jaunt along D.C.’s lovely Rock Creek Parkway to take in all its natural beauty.”
Kick off your spring racing season by picking from three distances: 5k, 10k, or…the Double (Yep– you can run both!)
Ourever-popular Double option is the perfect choice for people wanting “that little somethin’ extra!”And for your Lil Leprechauns, don’t forget our Kids Dash– theLil’Leprechaun Leap!
The Double reaches capacity quickly — be a medal-earner as among the first 600 finishers to register for the Double. After reaching 600, the Double is open for racing but not for the medal so don't delay in registering if you want to earn that special reward!
