With its great tradition as a rite of spring, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Run has welcomed over 5,000 runners on a 5-mile course through downtown St. Louis. Our commemorative t-shirt has been a classic for runners and walkers in our region as are the finisher’s medals.
As we know, 2020 and 2021 has brought its own set of challenges resulting from the pandemic so we were not able to hold our event in person for 2020 and it was necessary to pivot at the last minute to a virtual run. In 2021, we were able to hold a 500-person live 5K run along with a 5 mile virtual run and a 43 mile challenge.
But in 2022, we were able to stage an amazing comeback with our in-person run coming back to downtown St. Louis! We are continuing that same momentum into our 2023 run as well! Here is our 2023 finisher medal and t-shirt!
In addition, please note that starting for this year’s event, you will be able to donate a portion of your registration fee to the four local charities we have partnered with that are listed on this page. They are as follows:
