Alongside the nearby Arlington 4 Miler, the St. Pat’s Run Fest 5k and 10k in DC is a great way to get a good workout in this Saint Patrick’s Day weekend! Challenge yourself to a race—or to more than one—in the “shadow of the Washington Monument.” On Sunday, March 15, runners are encouraged to celebrate the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day by dressing in their zaniest all-green outfit before heading to the starting line at 8:15 a.m. (for the 10K) race or 9 a.m. (for the 5K race). The DC race starts and ends at the Washington Monument, while the Arlington four-mile race (held on March 14) starts at Arlington’s Ireland’s Four Courts Pub.
No onsite registration will be available, so be sure to sign up in advance if you’re interested in running; prices increase on March 13. While medals won’t be available for individual races, they will be offered for those who complete one of the Double or Triple Challenges, combining the 5K, 10K, and/or Saturday’s four-mile race in Arlington.
No entry refunds are available for race registrations, except in the case of active duty orders. Similarly, no athlete to athlete transfers will be available.
