Get your green on and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the third annual Kirkland Shamrock 5K Race & Family Run. This popular event starts from Marina Park at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 15. Last year, not even cold, drizzly skies could stop 1,000 colorful and costumed runners, walkers and baby stroller-pushers from taking part.
This year’s course winds its way through downtown streets, offering stunning views of the Olympic Mountains and Lake Washington. Local businesses have lined up to make the course festive and fun. Creative outfits, funny hats, and the wearin’ of the green are all encouraged!
Registration is $45; save $5 if you sign up by February 28. All entrants receive a free t-shirt and admission to the post-race festivities at The Wilde Rover Irish Restaurant.
