One of the communities iconic yearly events, a 10-k or half marathon run to 317 (Bozeman’s local Irish pub) commemorates St. Patrick’s Day. While it is traditionally on the Saturday before March 17, this year’s ‘Run to the Pub’ has been expanded to a weeklong virtual race March 15-21.
Run to the Pub began fourteen years ago when one of the owners of Pub 317 motivated a few friends for a St. Patrick’s Day jog that ended with a beer at the bar. The event steadily grew from there, now hosting thousands of racers from all over the world.
Participants run or walk throughout the week, and once complete, racers can submit their times to see where they would have finished.
Registration for the race, stories posted by former winners of the Dublin trip, and more information can be found at www.runtothepub.com.
