March is here!!! That means St. Patrick's Day, and to people in St. Louis, MO, that is a BIG DEAL!
It all starts off at 9AM with the 33rd Annual St. Patrick's Day 5 Mile. This run is the definition of FUN run. People of all levels of experience, ages, and abilities are welcome and many people come dressed in the spirit of the holiday, so you'll get an eyeful of revelry. If you'd like to be a walking participant or use a stroller during the race, that is fine as well, just NO PETS! Again, the race starts at 9AM.......so you can get a little extra sleep as compared to other fun runs which tend to start earlier in the morning.
After the race, you can stay downtown for the parade which starts at 11:30, and/or begin the celebration and party! I already know of people planning a huge BBQ when the race is over!
More information about the race and registration can be found here: http://www.irishparade.org/site/run/
So St. Louisans and Non-St. Louisans alike, sign up or go on downtown and cheer people on......what a perfect holiday!
