ST. PADDY’S 5K & 8K RUN/WALK
Get seriously Irish for St. Patrick’s Day as Chicago’s St. Paddy’s 5/8K Run & Walk in Lincoln Park returns for its 19th year of green fun.
With its course route along the lakefront, participants are encouraged to use their imaginations and don green attire (or wear a costume) to celebrate the Emerald Isle. There will also be awards for the best-dressed.
So grab your friends, show your Celtic pride and help kick off the spring running season by signing up for the Windy City’s oldest St. Patrick’s Day sprint.
In addition, all participants will receive a commemorative event shirt and are invited to the post-run party at a Compass Bar located one block from the race site at 433 W Diversey Pkwy!
NEW IN 2020! All participants receive a finisher medal! In addition to a long-sleeve tech shirt!
Your registration fee includes an official long-sleeve race shirt, money-saving goodie bag, finisher medal and complimentary sponsored beverage at the post-race party.
