Race change to virtual run:

the 40th running of the original
cleveland st. patrick's day race

Join us Saturday, March 14th, 2020 for the 40th anniversary of this Cleveland running classic! We're looking forward to a festive morning filled with Mass, miles, Irish entertainment, festive clothing and the post-race celebration at Mulberry's in the Flats which is sponsored by Great Lakes Brewery - just don't forget to wear your green!

St. Malachi is pleased to have Fox 8’s Kenny Crumpton, famous for his Kickin it With Kenny series, as the 40th Annual Honorary Chair.  Kenny is sure to fire up the crowd as he starts the races. If you are lucky you may get a selfie with this marathon runner!

We're pleased to continue our partnership with GCXC which allows even more funds to be donated to the Malachi Ministries!
