SIOUX FALLS, SD - On behalf of the 2019 St Patty's Day Mile event staff, sponsors and volunteers. We want thank all participants for registering for this years event. We have been working real hard over the past few weeks to contingency plan for this year event due to all the weather challenges we have had this spring.
Alternative courses were submitted to the city as the majority of our planned courses are currently flooded. Due to weather, safety, and resource concerns the city has decided understandably to close access to the parks for events. Unfortunately, this means we will be forced to cancel this years 5K and 5 Mile. All participants registered for the Irishman, 5 Mile, and 5K will have their registrations transferred to the St Patty's Day Mile Race which starts today at 12th Street and Phillips Ave at 1:55PM on the St Patrick's Day Parade Route.
Participants are welcome to have someone come pick up your packet today if you have not already done so. Packet Pickup will be held today from 10:00AM to 1:00PM at the Historic Victorian Inn located at 117 North Duluth Ave next to Pettigrew Museum. For directions goto:
We understand that this is not what any of us wanted, but we are just trying to make the best out of a bad situation. Thank you again for your understanding.
