O'Gara's Bar has been celebrating St. Patrick's Day since 1941. O'Gara's Irish Run 8k and 5k was added to their list of St. Patrick's Day events in 2015.

O'Gara's Irish Run is proud  to host the USATF Minnesota 8K Championship race. USATF Team Members should obtain their special promotion code from their captains prior to completing registration.

The day begins with our Kids Fun Run at 9:45 a.m. Kids will run a 1/2 mile. This is followed by our 8k and a 5k at 10:00 a.m. The 8k and 5k course are both USATF certified.

All activities start and finish at O'Gara's - warm up in one of their many party rooms before the race, enjoy great drinks and food for a fun party after the race.

Your 8k or 5k race entry includes one free drink ticket - good for beer, pop, or water. All participants also receive an O'Gara''s Irish Run shirt.

The race will be run on Selby Avenue - heading east to Western and returning on the same route. Course is fairly flat and straight as an arrow! Both the 8k and 5k are USATF certified courses and both races feature chip timing by Mtec results.
