For those of you that want to walk or run at a non-competitive pace, you can sign-in starting at 8:45 a.m. with the event starting at 10:00 a.m.

You're all encouraged to dress up in your best St. Patrick theme garb. Bring the family as the folks from CASA will be laying down rocks for a rock hunt as well. McDonalds will be giving out coupons for Green Milkshakes, and there'll also be plenty of food trucks on hand.
