Mater Dei Irish Fest 5k

New Date: TENTATIVELY rescheduled for September 19th, 2020, more Information to come.

As many have heard events across the country have been suspended, cancelled or postponed as a precaution to COVID-19.  Here in the Midwest we are seeing the affects as well and due to the recent cancellation of the Topeka St Patricks Day Parade, as well as the postponement of all downtown events this Saturday we are sad to announce we will be POSTPONING the IF5K.

We are in the works with our vendors and other Irish Festival activities on rescheduling the event for a future date.  We have a TENTATIVE reschedule date of September 19th, 2020.  As a pre-registered participant in this year's event you are already registered for the new date and time.  We will confirm the new date as we gather more information.

Packet Pickup has been cancelled, we will be rescheduling the time for packet pickup to be closer to the new event date.

If you have any concerns please let us know and we will work to get answers to you as quickly as possible.
