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.
The day begins with our Kids Fun Run at 9:45 a.m. Kids will run a 1/2 mile. All Kids Run participants receive a medal at the finish. New this year Kids Run participants may choose to receive a shirt with their registration. Select either the NO SHIRT or WITH SHIRT categories.
The 8k and 5k both begin 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.
