YMCA St. Patrick's Day Run March 13, 2020

St. Patricks Day Fun Run presented by Idaho Central Credit Union

March 13, 2021
All Ages

Event Canceled:

Today we made the difficult decision to cancel the YMCA St. Patrick’s Day Run. We are doing this at the recommendation for the City of Boise and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to enhance the health and safety of the community, minimizing the spread COVID-19 (Coronavirus). As you know from your previous participation in Y events, the health and safety of our community is the top priority for the YMCA.
These measures are being taken out of an abundance of caution, hoping to helping slow the transmission of COVID-19, keeping the Treasure Valley safe and healthy.

We may not be able to run together but you can still run, we have marked the 5K and 5 mile courses. Run the course, take selfie and share it with us. Tag us at @tvfamilyymca #tvfamilyymca! See the links at the bottom of the page.

Join the fun and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day the healthy way; the Y way. All runs start at Julia Davis Park band shell. Sign up your family and friends today and bring your green, we will be looking for the top 5 best dressed Leprechauns or Green Runners so be creative.

All proceeds from this fun run supports the YMCA Team Idaho Track and Cross Country Club. This club, that started 40 years ago, helps kids at all levels improve and enjoy track & field and cross country in addition to learning goal setting, sportsmanship and proper methods of reaching a high level of fitness.
