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

Come out and join us Saturday, March 14th, 2020 for the 40th anniversary of this Cleveland running classic! The St. Malachi Church 5 Miler & 2 Mile Run/Walk will begin and end near the St. Malachi Church. We're looking forward to a festive morning filled with miles, entertainment, shamrocks, and the post-race celebration at Mulberry's in the flats featuring discounted beers from the After party sponsor Great Lake Brewery. - just don't forget to wear your green!

The race is brought to you by St. Malachi Parish, which is celebrating over 150 years of service in Cleveland.  Prior to the run, St. Malachi will be celebrating mass in the Church at 8:00AM.  Everyone is invited to attend, no matter what your denomination or faith.  Mass will be completed in plenty of time to participate in the Run.

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