- Join us on Saturday March 18th for Arizona’s largest Irish-themed run/walk. In it’s 7th year, this unique event helps to raise awareness of Prostate cancer and raise funds for Prostate on Site Project, supporting on-site prostate cancer screening and helping save lives through early detection.
This annual event features an 8k, 4k and Irish k run/walk, suitable for walkers and runners, pets and strollers welcome. All participants in the 8k and 4k receive a long sleeved quarter zip technical shirt and a finishers medal - a leaf of a four leaf clover, collectable in four parts over the next four years.
New this year is the 1/2 marathon, attracting runners from all over the country to compete on a fast flat course. Along with the unique finishers medal and technical shirt, 1/2 marathon participants also receive a finishers cap, compliments of Wells Fargo and Glendale CVB.
Festivities include live Irish music and performances Kilted Spirit and Glendale Pipes and Drums funded in part by the City of Glendale through its annual Performing Arts Partnership Program. Get in the Irish spirit by wearing your best green, competing for one of the many costume prizes that we’ll be giving out. Stay on after the event for the after party at Westgate Entertainment District, where we will treat you to a complimentary beer.
