Costume Contest

We encourage our participants to dress up for the race in their best green, Irish or shamrock themed costumes. We've seen some great ones over the years! There will be a contest for the best costume following the race at the Finish Line Party under the shelter at the Robert F. Stephens Courthouse Plaza. Please remember to choose a costume that allows for free movement without tripping or endangering yourself or other runners around you.


Overall Awards, based on order crossing the finish (gun time), and age group and team awards, based on chip time, will be presented after the race. Awards will be given out to the top three males and females in each of the following divisions: overall, ages 4-7, 8-11, 12-15, 16-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, and 80+. Awards will also be given out to the top three male teams, female teams, and co-ed teams.
