If you haven’t heard by now, for the second year in a row, the Holyoke St. Patrick’s Day Road Race has been cancelled due to concerns surrounding COVID-19
We certainly didn’t come to this decision lightly but in the interest of our participants, volunteers, and our community we have cancelled this year’s in person race. We’ve been looking forward to the race since the cancellation last year, never thinking this pandemic would last this long.
We understand that this isn’t a replacement for the real thing but running with 7000 others right now is not possible, but we will try to make it just as fun! This March we will hold the 2nd Virtual Holyoke St Patrick’s Day Road Race. Create your own 10K route (or use ours!) and compete against other runners. We will provide a familiar looking t-shirt, printable custom bib number, free beer, and local giveaways.
Entry Fees (Virtual 10K):
$25 Until Race Day!
There will be a familiar looking t-shirt that will be mailed to each participant. We want to support our local bars and restaurants that help with the party every year, so we are going to buy a beer for each runner at one of the bars around the finish line. We will also have prizes and giveaways in the form of gift certificates to local businesses.
