St. Patrick’s Day 5K
March 12, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Baltimore’s Saint Patrick’s Day 5k is a road race that will be taking place in Patterson Park on Friday, March 12th, 2021. The Baltimore Road Runners Club (BRRC) will be hosting this race for its 4th time. 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 behind Patterson Park Public Charter School (PPPCS)! It’s Saint Patrick’s Day after all.
Date and Location: March 12, 2021 6:30 PM – Patterson Park – Baltimore, MD
Course: Want to chase a PR? This might be 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.
Registration: Details will be provided when available.
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.
Race Conditions and Weather Cancellations: The averages in Baltimore on March 13th are a high of 55 and a low of 40. No guarantees, though! Sunset will be at 7:10 PM, guaranteed. We will run in most weather and race and road conditions. In the very unlikely event that the race is cancelled for any reason, no refunds are available, sorry. Cancellations would be posted on www.brrc.com and our facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/groups/baltroadrun/
