Well, the St. Pat's 5K didn't go quite as planned in 2020, so we're doing a RERUN!
The Rolla Chamber of Commerce invites you to join them for the Best Ever St. Pat's 5K, the Rerun, on Saturday, March 13. Come walk, run, skip, or crawl with us, and be sure to wear your green as there will be prizes for the best wearin' o the green along with a few other surprise awards! The race will be chip timed, and awards will be given for the top finishers in each age division and the top overall male and female. The cost is $35, with the option to choose in-person or virtual participation. Participants will receive the coveted "race that didn't happen" 2020 St. Pat's 5K shirt and finisher medal, and a 2021 race shirt. Register by February 28 to guarantee a race shirt. Race proceeds benefit the Destination Rolla Fund.
