Join me at the Holyoke St. Patrick’s Road Race!

On March 21st make your way out to Ireland Parish, now known as Holyoke, Massachusetts, and take part in the Holyoke St. Patrick’s Road Race! This iconic 10K race is a bucket-list run for runners and what better time to tackle the race than this year!

This 10K road race takes place on Saturday and is followed by one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day parades in the country on Sunday. Holyoke’s rich Irish heritage comes out to shine this weekend as the city turns green for both residents and visitors alike.

The 10K course is a good, challenging course with some nice hills mixed in for good measure but the crowd support along the course is reminiscent of larger, iconic marathons or half-marathon races. Bagpipers, people cheering, even a quick beer table to refuel in the final mile all come complete with a really great course and all around fun atmosphere.

The race kicks off and finishes in the heart of downtown Holyoke and post-race merriment is aplenty wherever you look. Live Irish music and a pint have a unique way of making the miles logged all but fade away.

Having grown up in Holyoke, I have a certain affection for this race that I certainly want everyone to share in and am convinced if you sign up you will truly enjoy the run. I’ve run the race more times than I can probably count and this year both Mrs. Running Griffin and our oldest daughter will be tacking the course, too!
