2021 Virtual Clare Irish Festival Road Race

Complete your run anytime between March 1-March 13, 2021

Details for our Virtual 2021 Clare Irish Festival Road Race are listed below. This is a VIRTUAL RACE- There is no in-person race for this year!  We’ve maintained a list of paid participants from last year’s race, so if you were signed up for the 2020 race (and did not receive a refund), then you are all set for this year’s virtual event. There will not be an in-person 5K Race, 10K Race, 2 Mile Walk, or Kids Fun Run this year.  Instead, 5K, 10K, or 2 Mile Walk participants will complete their race on their own.  Participants are encouraged to record their time and submit it to a spreadsheet link that we will be sending out in a few weeks.  We will email the link to new signups on Runsignup, so that you have the link to post your results.  Participants will have a window of time to complete their race from March 1st-March 13th.  A link to the finalized results will be sent out to all participants after March 13th.  There will be no official awards for this year’s race.  

All participants (5K Run, 10K Run, and 2 Mile Walk) will receive a finisher’s medallion and a T-Shirt for participating in the 2021 Virtual Clare Irish Festival Road Race.  We apologize that our T-shirts will have the listing of our 2020 event on them, as we are unable to order additional shirts for this year after having to cancel last year’s race at the last minute.  

We will be offering two different dates when participants can pick up their finisher’s medallion and t-shirt for the race.  We would like to encourage individuals to pick up t-shirts/medals at Clare High School for as many participants as possible, so that everyone can get their race items.  Pick-up dates/times will be on Friday, March 12, 2021 from 6-8pm and on Saturday, March 13th, 2021 from 10am-Noon.  T-Shirt/Medal pick-up will occur outside of the high school cafeteria.  Please safely social distance when arriving to briefly pick up t-shirts/awards.   New signups will be capped at 250.  Virtual Race Registration will end at noon on Friday, March 12, 2021.

We would like to thank you for being a part of our race.
