When and Where
The Erin Go Braugh 7.77k will be held on March 14 at 9:00 am at Westminster Promenade Terrace. Parking is available near the Westin Hotel, and a map is available here. Be sure to don your green running gear for luck and arrive ready to carb-load on complimentary Lucky Charms! If you don’t make it in time to enjoy the pre-race festivities located at the foot of the Westin Hotel, no worries–the after-party at Rails End Beer Co. will be just as awesome. Race participants receive one beer on the house!
Curious about how this race gets it name? Erin go Braugh is translated from the Irish phrase Éire go Brách, which means “Ireland forever.”
The race kicks off at Big Dry Creek Trail and ends at the bottom of the terrace. To take a closer look at the course, head over to this site. The majority of the course is on concrete, with some areas of packed gravel. Jogging strollers are permitted, but be sure to watch your step at the footbridges, as you’ll encounter bumpy terrain at the approach and exit of the bridges. This is also a dog-friendly race, so feel free to bring your furry friend (as long as they’re well-behaved and on a short leash that won’t interfere with other runners). Feeling extra festive? Dress your pup for St. Patrick’s Day and participate in the canine costume contest! The winning pup will receive a gift basket from Kriser’s Natural Pet.
Planning to run with a group? The more the merrier! Groups of five or more will receive $5 off per person when the entire group registers online prior to race day.
