The beloved O'race traditions will continue in 2018, with some fun new St. Paddy's themed perks. Picture seas of green swag, map of Ireland medals and festive music to keep you moving through each 3.1 mile race, with cold beer and hot food awaiting after each finish line.
There are two options for challenges to beef up your bling: the 3-race Trinity Challenge or the 4-race Lucky Challenge. Earn the map of Ireland, each county in Ireland is represented by one race finish medal - complete the full map with all 4 races! NOTE - 3-race participants must include both the Courthouse O'Putnam 5K and the O'Niantic 5K for their three race medals to connect.
Each race has a different party vibe and unique swag so challenge participants can boost their Irish-inspired wardrobe:

Courthouse O'Putnam (March 11) – green knit gloves are the swag you'll earn, then re-energize on delicious corned beef sandwiches served on pretzel rolls provided by Courthouse Bar & Grille (coupled with a cold beer, of course!).
