It’s back! We are hosting our 3rd annual St Patrick’s Day .1K on Saturday March 13th 2021. You are invited to take part in the world’s shortest run/walk. It’s .1k … that’s 328 feet!

Registration is now open! 20 bucks gets you an event t-shirt, racing bib, commemorative pint class, and a swag bag stuffed with goodies. Plus, a portion of the registration fee will go to Lurie Children’s Hospital.

This year, you can choose to participate virtually or run the race on site. The onsite race will take place at Fatty’s Pub & Grille in DeKalb on Saturday March 13th from 10am-2pm. We will have waves of people running to accommodate social distancing. Every 10 minutes we will allow a group of “runners” to complete the course. If you choose the virtual race option you can pick up your swag bag on March 13th from 10am-2p. Be sure to share your photos on Facebook or Instagram and tag us so we can celebrate your athleticism! (Note: there will be no pre-pick up available for swag bags for virtual or onsite runners.)

Space is limited, so register now for our 3rd annual St Patrick’s Day .1K benefiting Lurie Children’s Hospital with Fatty’s Pub & Grill, Metro by T- Mobile, Dogfish Head Craft Beer, Jameson Irish Whiskey, OLT Marketing, GEM Gaming, and 94.9 WDKB!


Requested shirt size is guaranteed up until March 5th.
