Baltimore’s Saint Patrick’s Day 5k is a road race that will be taking place in Patterson Park on Friday, March 15th, 2019. The Baltimore Road Runners Club (BRRC) will be hosting this race its third time in 2019. We hope you celebrate your Irish, or your not so Irish, heritage with us with a run through Baltimore’s most historic park. Feel free to wear your favorite St. Patrick’s Day garb or dress like a leprechaun! Celebrate the run with beer after the race in the courtyard (weather permitting! The backup plan is the gym, just as it was in 2018.) behind Patterson Park Public Charter School (PPPCS)! It’s Saint Patrick’s Day after all.
Date and Location: March 15, 2019 6:30 PM – Patterson Park – Baltimore, MD
Amenities: All finishers will receive a BRRC St Paddy’s Day themed neck gaiter/bandana or a BRRC glass mug! You will choose one or the other at packet pickup/registration on race day. After the race, we are hoping that you come to our…
Post-race Party: Complimentary craft beer (We’ll have a selection of two local craft beers, yet to be determined) for all 21+ year old participants at our post-race party! We will have live tunes from the talented Will Alton from after the race until around 8:30 PM in the courtyard behind Patterson Park Public Charter School. Please bring your ID.
Course: Want to chase a PR? This is the course for you! This net-downhill, 100% asphalt course drops 40 feet from start to finish and stays on the wider sections of roadway (no vehicles) through Patterson Park. There is one large climb in the 2nd mile but you’re rewarded with a run-by of the Pagoda and a long descent to the Pulaski Monument before finishing. We will have mile marks and split times.
– Now through 2/28: $20 for BRRC members, $35 for non-members
– 3/1 through 3/13 when online registration closes: $25 for BRRC members, $40 for non-members
– Race-day: $25 for BRRC members, $40 for non-members – cash only on race day, please!
Packet Pickup: On site at the Pavilion (map), on race day only, starting at 5:00 pm.
Parking: Public on-street parking is free, but limited, around Patterson Park. More public on-street parking along Linwood Ave and streets north and east of the Park is likely easiest. Participants are encouraged to carpool or take taxis, uber, or lyft.
