St. Paddy’s Day 5K Run/2-Mile Walk is April 18

This fun event is returning for its 21st year! The St. Paddy’s Day 5K Run/2-Mile Walk will be held Saturday, April 18.

Same-day registration and check-in starts at 2 p.m. at the Salisbury Elks Lodge, and the run/walk steps off at 3 p.m., and follows a scenic course through the Salisbury Zoo and Park.

NEW: Electronic chip timing will be used this year, producing accurate and nearly immediate results! This is the same type of timing system used in other running events, such as the Boston Marathon.

Once they cross the finish line, participants will return to the Elks Lodge for the awesome after party, which includes free food and drink for registered participants (guests can attend for $5), runners prizes, door prizes, a 50/50 raffle, and live auction.|

The cost is $25 for walkers. Runners pay $30 in advance, and $35 at the door. Proceeds will benefit MAC Alzheimer’s programs.

MAC is pleased to welcome Delegate Carl Anderton Jr. as this year’s honorary chairman. Participants can register online (see the link on MAC’s home page) For more information on the event, call 410-742-0505, ext. 118.
