Start your St. Patrick's Day celebrations with a 5k fun run or walk through beautiful downtown Topeka. Proceeds from the race go to the students at Mater Dei Catholic School. This family friendly race includes a nice flat course perfect for all ages and levels of runners. New this year will be a professional timing system for the most accurate race results. There will be a Leprechaun Leap before the race for all the "wee" little ones and pancakes after the race for all participants. Medals will be given to top finishers and door prizes galore will be handed out throughout the event. Prizes will also be awarded to the team with the most Irish spirit and individual costume awards. Plus, you'll be right in the center of all the action including the Mater Dei Irish Fest, the Topeka Bed Race, and the St. Patrick's Day parade! We hope to see you there!
