Southern Arizona Roadrunners (SAR) is very pleased and proud to announce a new running and walking event coming to 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!
The innaugural event will take place the morning of the festival on Sunday, March 15, 2020 and will be centered around the Children's Museum and Armory Park.
The "Desert Leprechaun 5k & 1Mile Run/Walk" is planned to begin at 8:30am in the morning in Downtown Tucson. 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.
Of course, details are evolving and will be put into place over the next few months. Please check in at the SAR Facebook page and here on the SAR website for updates.
