There are lots of St. Patrick’s Day events going on in Michigan. But this why you should put the Pot O’ Gold Race in Downtown Flint on your calendar. Read on to see why…..
A Scenic Road Race through Flint
This is your chance to enjoy a 4 mile course through some amazing parts of Flint. Start at the historic Masonic Temple, run by the Farmer’s Market and into University of Michgan-Flint’s campus. Wind your way through the impressive Mott Applewood Estate and then back through downtown to finish again at the Masonic Temple. Come experience a small part of what Flint has to offer.
What’s an after party without beer and pizza!
After running/walking 4 miles, you deserve to reenergize with FREE pizza sponsored by H&R Block. And what better way to wash down a hot slice than with a COLD BEER! Beer will be sold benefiting Veterans Transitioning to Civilians, but for the first 400 registered the first BEER IS FREE! (don’t wait, go here now and sign up). And a party has to have music, so there will be a DJ playing music until the party ends!
Free Stuff and Demo Shoes
Who doesn’t like free stuff. Like the chance to WIN a FREE Garmin 35 GPS watch! Garmin will have a table setup so you can go check out all the new watches and enter to win a FREE Shamrock green Garmin Forerunner 35 GPS watch (retail $199.99).
Or maybe shoes are your thing, which is why HOKA ONE ONE will also be there so you can demo some of the new model shoes as well as enter to WIN a FREE pair of HOKA ONE ONE Shoes.
Don’t forget the family!
With the Lil Blarney Kids Run starting everything off, make sure to bring the whole family.
For the Speedsters…Win the Race and Get a Pair of Shoes
That’s right, the top Male/Female Runners/Walkers, Top Male/ Female Masters Runners/Walkers (does not include age division winners) will be getting a FREE pair of HOKA ONE ONE as their award! Who needs a fancy plaque when you can wear your trophy on your feet! But the age division winners haven’t been forgotten, as they will go home with a nice DIVISION WINNER BEER MUG……which is convenient to hold your post-race beer!
After Party to the After Party
This year with the St. Paddy’s Beer Fest hosted by TownSquare Media is going on at the Farmer’s Market, all Pot O’ Gold participants get FREE entry to the beer tasting with your race bib. Keep the fun going by not just enjoying one after party, but enjoying two of them! (drink ticket are not included)
