What better way to kick off Day 2 of the St. Patrick’s Day weekend of fun activities surrounding the First Ever 20th Annual World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade then with the 2nd Ever World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Zero K® footrace in downtown Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas.
The “race” will cover the 299-foot route of the parade on Historic Bridge Street and end at O’Kelley’s Pub, the world’s biggest inflatable Irish popup pub.
Sponsored by Michelob Ultra and Arkansas Beverage Sales of Hot Springs
The Zero K entry fee of $20 gets participants a Zero K T-shirt, a finisher’s medal, and a race bib. All proceeds from the Zero K will benefit Tri-Lakes CASA, the organization of Court Appointed Special Advocates for foster children that serves Garland, Hot Spring and Grant Counties.
Awards will be given for the following categories:
Fastest: This one will be for First Place Contenders. Runners should bring their fastest run and try to set a “world record.” Runners will keep their own times.
Best Costume: This one will be the Leprechaun Dash. Runners are encouraged to dress up in their favorite St. Paddy’s Day gear or as their favorite leprechaun and run.
Slowest: This one, the Last Place Shootout, is for the slowest racer to cross the finish line while maintaining forward motion. This one is great for younger kids, pets and the laziest of runners. 3PM – Packet Pick Up – Bridge Street 5PM – Race Begins – Bridge Street 8PM – Village People concert – free!!
