Register to run the St. Patrick’s Day Road Race

Race is On & Registration is Open! The South Boston Boys + Girls Club is thrilled to be back . . . . same great cause, same great course, same shirt designers (thanks, Dropkick Murphys)!  The road race takes place on Sunday, March 19th before the parade at 11am.  This year’s event will be entirely outside, including registration and post-event, with limited amenities and a smaller field, due to public health concerns and the health and safety of all. We’ll be a little more bare bones, the basics. Keeping it simple: It is all about the run, the shirt and supporting our kids!
