Runnin' of the Irish 10K & 5K

The Runnin’ of the Irish has been a strong community driven event in previous years helping provide a healthy and fun experience for our participants and members of the Effingham and surrounding communities. Established in 2012, this year we project to have nearly 500 runners at the event running to improve their overall health and enjoy one of the first early Spring events of the year.

This year runners will enjoy an event shirt, running on 10 ft wide paved trails, crossing a music serenaded finish line and be presented with a custom finisher medal. Post race you will receive a sample beer (21 and Over), great healthy refreshments and listen to the local area’s #1 irish band. The event starts at 10:00 a.m. and you'll be running on the TREC trail. The event begins at the Effingham Performance Center.
