Additional Information

Join us for a FUN, pre-St. Patrick’s Day celebration of all things Irish with BEER: Beer for Running, Beer for Walking, and Beer for Partying. Festivities begin at noon; the Run/Walk starts at 1:00pm; and the Party continues till 6:00pm. 

The 5k Run/Walk course has 5 Beer Pitstops. At each Pitstop, sample a 3-ounce cup from one of our fine craft beer sponsors: Generations, Granite City, Lena, Pig Minds, & Prairie Street. The course includes the Speedway race track. With the exception of spectators, all registered participants get a souvenir beer glass, a Shamrock Beer Run long-sleeve T-shirt, and a medal for completing the course. You must be at least 21 to participate.

This is not a timed race, but a race clock is posted, so you can see your time. Spectator fee is $10. Designated Driver (no beer) registration fee is $5 less than the regular (beer) registration fee. The post-race party is indoors, where all five breweries will set up to serve you. Beer tickets can be purchased during registration, before the race, and during the post-race party. 

This event benefits Nik’s Wish, The Nikolas Ritschel Foundation, which is a local 501(c)(3) charity whose mission is to bring precious moments of joy to young adults (18-24), and their loved ones, fighting cancer.
