Southern Arizona Roadrunners (SAR) is very pleased to produce this running and walking event in downtown Tucson in partnership with the iconic Tucson St. Patrick's Day Parade Festival. It's a St. Patrick's Day party like no other! In 2020 and 2021, this race had to be moved to virtual due to COVID-19, and a number of folks took that option. Many other folks decided to defer their entries to 2022. If you deferred 2022, your entry will automatically be moved to this 2021 event.

This event will take place beginning at 8:30am the morning of the festival on Saturday, March 11, 2023 and will be centered around the Children's Museum and Armory Park. The event will feature fast and flat courses along the Tucson St. Patrick's Day Parade route and will include a totally unique, custom finisher medal, a free beer at the festival with your race entry (only for those over 21 years old, of course!) and so much more. Bring your entire family out in the morning to get your run or walk on, and then stay for the amazing parade and festival. It will be an experience you won't soon forget! A portion of the event proceeds will be donated to the Children of Fallen Officers Scholarship Fund. For more information on the myriad happenings with the parade and festival please visit
