NEW THIS YEAR:
The Elite Start wave is for runners who will average a mile of 7:30 or faster. All other paces will start at 10:05 A.M.
We are adding pace groups this year, with groups starting every half minute! This will help the start of the race flow smoother. This is a family friendly event! Strollers are welcomed to start with the last pace group.
Parking will be available in designated Westport parking areas. Please do not park along the race route as vehicles will be towed.
There will be an aid station at mile 2 and another at the finish.
In Irish we would say this is “toirtiúil” (large)!
Split times will be called at the one, two and three-mile marks. Participants must move to the sidewalk after 90 minutes (11:30 A.M.). This event is timed using a disposable bib tag timing device. No need to return your chip when you are done!
We will have gift certificates and awards for overall male and female winners and prizes for the Top 3 Male and Female finishers in the following age groups: 9 & under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80+
Since 1958, the RRCA has awarded championship events at the National, Regional, and State level to promote the sport of distance running, recognize well run events, and award top performing runners in the open, masters (40+), grand masters (50+), and senior grand masters (60+) categories for both men and women.
We are extremely EXCITED to announce that the 2016 Westport St. Patrick’s Day run has been chosen as the RRCA State 4 Mile Championship Event!! Since this is a 2016 RRCA MO State Championship Event, RRCA awards will also be presented.
Competitive: A Competitive Team consists of 3 or more runners. Prizes will be awarded to the three fastest teams, judged by the low total cumulative time for the first 3 finishers on each team (a “cross country” scoring format).
Centipede: A Centipede Team consists of 3 or more attached runners. Think up a theme and make costumes! Cash awards of $100, $70, and $30 will be presented to the three most creative teams. The fastest Centipede will be awarded $60.
Costumes and festive attire are encouraged, so start planning your outfit today! The top 3 most creative costumes win prizes. Join us in a sing along of “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling” before the race and let your mind wander into the hills of the fatherland.
Dance the best Irish Jig Contest winners receive a $25 Cash Prize.
If a family of 3 or more sign up for the race, your name will be entered in a drawing for prizes from Merchants- to be announced at the race. Must be present to win.
