St. Paddy's 5 Miler

 The Freehold Area Running Club's 29th Annual St. Paddy's 5 Mile was held on Sunday, March 18th


Here's a great chance to run a nice 5 local 5 Miler - at the Freehold Area Running Club's St Paddy's 5 Miler !

For those of you who've run past St Paddy's 10 Milers, some of those same quiet country-ish roads will be used.

And for anyone who's run past St Paddy's races, FARC Winter Series race and/or FARC Toys For Tots races -  race starts and finishes at the same convenient location of Michael Tighe (Liberty Oak) Park, in Freehold (Georgia Road) - and as with all past FARC races, there'll be plenty of parking, convenient accessible "facilities" and plenty of post-race refreshments - both food and beverage.
St Paddy's races - as with all FARC races - always have great shirts and unique overall and age group awards

With a 28 year history, this is a great local club Spring race tradition to support and enjoy
