St. Paddy's Day 5K Fun Run/Walk in Somerville (and subsequent Bar crawl)

Girls -

MARCH 9 UPDATE:MEETING PLACE IS ROSEBUD...I'LL BE WEARING GREEN/WHITE JESTER HAT. CELL IS[masked]-7272...GISELLE

This is more "fun" than "run". Please join me on my first foray into running with this 5K through Davis Square on Sunday March 10 at 11 am.

Feel free to come watch, cheer, participate. Runners vary from complete newbies who walk to competitive runners. Many dress in green and St. Patrick's themed costumes...I plan on doing so also. There is plenty of drinking and partying afterwards, as the local bars co-sponsor the event.

Details can be found on the website at: http://www.baevents.com/rasnaheireann/info1

We'll plan on meeting in front of the Rose Bud diner both pre and post race. I'll send out my info closer to race day. Again, this is meant to be FUN. But also, for anyone who embarked on a New Year's resolution to get in shape or do more, this would be great incentive!

****

Update: Feb 10, 2013.  I admit that I've done zero training and am now totally focussing on the "fun" side of this run...ie. will be in costume and more looking forward to the bar afterwards.  There are bands playing in the area - anyone have a suggestion for which of the bars will be big enough to accomodate all of us afterwards?  Our options are: The Burren, The Sligo, The Foundry, Joshua Tree, Orleans Bar.

Also, do me a favor and put in your RSVP whether you will be there to run or to just cheer on/party.  I'm hoping someone from the cheering group will be kind enough to hold the bags and personal items for the runners...  Please also be updated about your RSVP...we'll be gathering before the run and after and I don't want to leave anyone behind but also don't want to be waiting around for no-shows.

    Aall...we just got the inside scoop...rosebud bar is opening up at 1:30 and they are giving free harpoon too...they were not listed as a sponsor so there won't be a line there

    The starting line and finish line are the same..if you plan to watch the race, i suggest you meet up with us at rosebud at 10:30...runners/Walkers can then head over to the race and cheering squad can set up along the route. When race is over, let's all head back to rosebud to regroup. If you don't want to see the race, just go straight to rosebud at 12. I think the bars will be open already so another option for you is to go inside a bar until race is over...it's going to be nuts there, so if we can't all find each other let's try to stay in contact :)

    Is there a place the pubbers/cheerers can meet during the race or should we just meet the runners a rosebud at 12....?

    Dana...if you check the website they last the parking details...they recommend the T, but I'll probably try to park too. Jessica and others, I plan on meeting everyone in front of Rosebud both before and after the race...note, the website said that you need a race bib to get into the sponsoring bars afterwards...so if we can't all get into the Burren or others, we may go somewhere else. Hope this helps!

    March 9, 2013

    • Dana

      good stuff! Thank you!

      March 9, 2013

  • Dana

    Hey Giselle, what are the parking details?

    March 9, 2013

  • Jessica

    I'd be interested in cheering on and then the bar crawl! Do we have a meet up point for the first bar yet?

    More questions!! If I'm just doing bar crawl, is there a fee? Starting place? How will I find the group?

      Thanks Giselle! Really bummed out I didn't registrar in time for this! I just ran Stu's in Clinton, MA yesterday with my mom! But I'm looking forward to cheering you all on and bar "hopping" after!

    February 15, 2013

    • Debbie

      Hi Lenora, I just signed up, too. I'll probably be walking, with a little jogging as well. I'd be up for some walk/jogs over the next few weeks, if you'd like! I live in Somerville & can easily get to Davis/Porter/Union Squares. :-)

    Just updated the posting, but in case you don't see it there: Update: Feb 10, 2013. Just registered online. For those of you still committed to running, you should probably sign up within the next 5-7 days as this thing will sell out. I know it's hard to think of anything right now, other than snow. I admit that I've done zero training and am now totally focussing on the "fun" side of this run...ie. will be in costume and more looking forward to the bar afterwards. There are bands playing in the area - anyone have a suggestion for which of the bars will be big enough to accomodate all of us afterwards? Our options are: The Burren, The Sligo, The Foundry, Joshua Tree, Orleans Bar.
