Mark your calendars and get ready to break out your green apparel and Irish spirit right here in Ocean City, Maryland! The St. Patrick’s Day holiday is right around the corner, and the resort town is getting ready from some exciting celebrations.
March 16th @ 9 am | Boardwalk 5k Run
Put your running shoes on! Sponsored by Shenanigan’s Irish Pub, all runners over 21 years of age will receive a ticket to redeem one Guinness drink to kick off the weekend. ($30 Registration Fee) This year’s event will be more “sophisticated” than ever. As you check-in on race day, volunteers will hand you a chip. The chip will be used for timing, attached to your shoelace, and will provide precise race times and results!
