We have just been informed that the parade organizers and city officials decided to cancel the Worcester County parade during a Tuesday afternoon meeting at City Hall. This cancellation also includes the Celtic 5k run.
We regret this has happened but understand the decision.
We will plan on rescheduling the Celtic 5k for a future date after the coronavirus is no longer a public safety issue.
More to follow shortly. We will post more information on our Facebook page and website at celtic5k.com soon.
