The Erie Runner’s Club’s offers three distance options for the St. Patrick’s Day run this Saturday, March 16.
The Erie Runner’s Club’s St. Patrick’s Day race (10K, 5K or both) is THIS Saturday, March 16.
You have plenty of choices in this race: You can do the 5K, the 10K or…..go big and do both to complete a 15K in one morning.
The races begin & end in front of the Rotary Pavilion at Presque Isle State Park (Between beaches 6 and 8) with the 5K starting at 9 a.m. and the 10K starting at 10 a.m.
Registration fees are just $17 for the 5K or 10K or $19 for both (no shirts), but prices increase on March 13th. Register online here.
Day of race signup and packet pickup for pre-registered runners will begin at 7:30 at the Rotary Pavilion near the Waterworks area at Presque Isle. Post-race refreshments and award presentation in the Rotary Pavilion will begin 15 minutes after the last finishers cross the finish line.

BTW…if you have not registered for St. Pat’s already, but think you qualify for the Winter Series, you’re too late. You had to preregister to receive a Winter Series award (Sorry, rules are rules and the ERC has to plan ahead).
