St. Pat’s Run Fest 4 Miler Returns to Arlington on March 14

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at one of the area’s most popular races: the Arlington Four Courts Four Miler. The event is fun and lively and is perfect for runners of all skill sets.

One of the main attractions of the event is the post-race party, which takes place at Four Courts, an Irish pub. There will be food, music, and a complimentary alcoholic beverage (remember to bring your ID!). The party is a great reward for finishing the race, which is a bit challenging — the first half is uphill, and the second half is downhill. The race takes place at 9 a.m. on March 14 and early registrations are encouraged. The cost to register is $48. Don’t be afraid to have some fun with your outfit, either! Runners often get dressed up in their best St. Patrick’s Day gear.

The Four Miler is now part of the two-day St. Pat’s Run Fest, which also includes the St. Pat’s 5K and 10K on Sunday, March 15. If you’d like, you can run on both days, and compete in all three races: the Four Miler, the 5K, and the 10K!
