O’Peekskill Race to the Craic
March 11 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us for a 5k run or walk mostly along the beautiful shores of the Hudson River. The race will start at 10:00 am in front of Peekskill Brewery and will finish a very short distance away on the waterfront green. For those of you who participated in the Block Party 5k, this will be the same course, but in reverse! Get the rolling hills out of the way and finish on the flat, fast and beautiful Peekskill waterfront.
The Wee 1K will be a 1 kilometer fun run on the waterfront intended for kids 10 and under and starting at 10:45 am.
Peekskill Brewery will be opening early for check-in and also to provide an included post-race beer! Thanks PB! Race day bib pickup will be 9:15-9:45. Details about picking up bibs before race day will be emailed.
We will have overall and age group prizes, Irish music and of course lots of craic! What better way to pregame for the awesome Peekskill Saint Patrick’s Day Parade than with a run and a beer?! Don’t forget to wear your best green gear!
*Strollers and pets please start towards the back.
