The St. Patrick’s Day Half Marathon isn’t just for those who are hardcore runners. It’s also for area businesses that want to compete for bragging rights for the entire year. The iRan Challenge invites out the area real estate offices to compete for prizes while the Corporate Challenge calls on all businesses and organizations to win a trophy and bragging rights.

Every runner and competitor is also invited to participate in the 2017 Best Costume Contest. All you have to do is dress up in your best Irish-inspired outfit and show up at the Finish Line Festival at Reas Avenue and Magnolia Avenue at 10 a.m. You can participate alone or with a group, and prizes will be given for first place and first runner-up.

Come out on the fifth and participate in one of the many events such as the Green Mile, the Main Street 5k, the Health and Fitness Expo, or the Half Marathon. There’s also a Kids’ Tribes and Clans race and the Runners’ Beer Festival. The races start at specific times throughout the morning, so check the event guide for more information.
