Running Excels invites community members to celebrate Beverly’s Irish heritage by participating in our last ever Emerald Isle Mile on Sunday, March 15! The one-mile, chip-timed run down Western Avenue starts at 11:30 am, a half hour before the South Side Irish Parade begins. Registration is $25 and is open through March 14. The race is open to 500 runners, so be sure to reserve your spot today!
The runner who breaks the course record of 4:32 will receive $50.00! There will be no awards ceremony. Results will be posted online at Running Excels. If you are a winner, you may contact Running Excels to receive your prize. The Emerald Isle Run is a fun event, but it’s also a fundraiser to support the South Side Irish Parade. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to offset parade costs.
