8th Annual Kiss Me I’m Irish Run

Join us on Saturday March 17th St Patrick's Day, for Arizona’s largest Irish-themed run/walk. In it’s 8th year, this unique event helps to raise awareness of Prostate cancer and raise funds for Prostate on Site Project, supporting on-site prostate cancer screening and helping save lives through early detection.

This annual event features a Half Marathon, 8k and 4k, suitable for walkers and runners, pets and strollers welcome. All participants in the Half Marathon, 8k and 4k receive a long sleeved technical shirt and a finishers medal - a leaf of a four leaf clover, collectible in four parts over the next four years.

Now in the second year the 1/2 marathon, attracting runners from all over the country to compete on a fast flat course. Along with the unique finishers medal and technical shirt, 1/2 marathon participants also receive a finishers cap, compliments of Wells Fargo and Glendale CVB.

Festivities include live Irish music and performances Kilted Spirit and Glendale Pipes and Drums funded in part by the City of Glendale through its annual Performing Arts Partnership Program. Get in the Irish spirit by wearing your best green, competing for one of the many costume prizes that we’ll be giving out.
