Whether you’re an avid runner or prefer to cheer from the sidelines, DC’s annual St. Pat’s Run Fest 5K and 10K is sure to be a blast. Scheduled for Sunday, March 15, this road race is simultaneously serious racing and pure fun. Racers who dress up in shamrock and leprechaun-themed gear keep the atmosphere festive and light-hearted, while race organizers offer prizes to the fastest finishers in multiple age categories, as well as a unique "Double Challenge" medal for runners who complete both the 5K and 10K routes.

Both races begin at the Washington Monument and wind through scenic paths along the Potomac, so whether you want to compete to win or simply zen-out and appreciate the scenery, this race might be just what you’re looking for. Even better, there’s a party at the finish line that lasts all day, with live entertainment, food, and drink. Head to the website for full details and race registration.
