 _ 2017 B.A.R.C. St Patrick's Day Races:

We are thrilled at the excitement around the Irish Double offering and we fully understand the disappointment of those who weren’t able to register in time to get a spot. It is very important to us to bring you a fun, well organized and safe race.  We have to plan well ahead to be able to accomplish such a task and limiting the Irish Double is just one way to achieve that by ordering medals and shirts well ahead of time.  Even though the Irish Double is full you are still able to register for both the 5k and 8k events!  


Going forward, we will carefully evaluate the possibility of opening up the Irish Double to allow more participation for next year.   Thank you for you understanding and we look forward to celebrating this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Races with you and the city of Bay City.

TriToFinish is excited to be managing the 44th Annual Bay Area Runners Club St Patrick's Day Races in 2017!
