The Lehigh Valley's most fun and festive race is back on March 17, 2024: St. Patrick's Day!

This race is closed. We have reached our limit of available bibs.


Break out your green gear and Irish spirit for the 14th running of the West End St. Patrick's 5k in Allentown. You'll enjoy a fast, flat, closed course with loads of people out to cheer you on in advance of the annual Allentown St. Patrick's Parade. While the course is perfect for a PR, it's also ideal for friends and family who simply want to come out and have a darn good time.
Amenities include Friday, Saturday and race-day bib pick up, indoor toilets at the start line, personalized bibs (if registered by February 19), 12:15 start for you late-risers and revelers, digital clocks at miles 1 and 2, a fabulous post-race indoor lunch with cookies, five-year age group awards and prizes for the best outfits.
Thank you to our primary sponsors, St. Luke's University Health Network, Muhlenberg College and QNB. Discount codes for $5 off are available if you are part of the St. Luke's, Muhlenberg and QNB families.
Merch sales close February 25. Please note: a shirt or glassware is not included with your entry. We will have a small number of extra shirts and glassware available for sale after the race.
Don't wait too long -- this race will close on March 12 or 850 runners, whichever comes first.
You must be able to finish the 5k in less than an hour. Anyone slower risks getting trampled by bagpipe bands on 19th Street at 1 p.m. That's no way to go.
