Racine, WI will be host to the 6th Annual St. Pat’s Day 5K® – Let the shenanigans begin! 
A change of venue In partnership with the Downtown Racine Development Corporation, the parade will be host to the 6th annual St. Pat’s Day 5K®, formerly held at Jose’s Blue Sombrero in Mount Pleasant. If a 5K is too much for you, we are also featuring a “Paddy’s 0.08ish K.” The race will begin at Pepi’s Pub & Grill (618 6th St.) and follow the parade route backward. Look for the top male and female finishers as they will join the parade procession upon their completion of the 5K. We're excited to join Downtown Racine and become a part of this annual tradition! 
For those of you who might think a 5K is too far, perhaps you want dress up the whole family in Paddy's day bling so they can experience being in a  parade OR  want to take your run to a new level, Sign up for Paddy's 0.08ish K.  You get all the same swag as the 5K run; you'll just finish sooner... a lot sooner! So suit up in your Leprechaun costume and join in on the fun. 
JUST AN FYI...We haven't given up on Jose's! We absolutely loved our former
home at Jose's Blue Sombrero. For that reason we created a new 5K event which is even more fitting... the "Cinco K Mayo®" to be held on May 5, 2019.
