No blarney, this is a fast and flat 5K! Get in your favorite green gear for a St. Paddy’s themed race that starts and finishes in front of Niantic Bay Bicycles. Run by the quiet, off-season cottages in the Pine Grove community of Niantic.

Swag includes Irish themed knit socks. Participants 21+ (with ID) also enjoy an ice cold craft beer from Five Churches Brewing and everyone enjoys some fresh food to re-fuel, featuring fresh baked bagels and Irish inspired donuts from Flanders Donuts & Bake Shop.

Lucky Challenge – Participate in all four O’races and earn the big bling! Check out the options for virtual/in-person combos to achieve the Lucky Challenge goal. Start with O’Shenanigans, then take on the Courthouse O’Putnam, O’Niantic and either the O’Hartford 5K or 10K. DETAILS

NEW! Li’l Lucky – Love the idea of a challenge but can’t swing two weekends of racing in a row? Join the O’Niantic 5K and the O’Hartford 5K or 10K on Sunday, March 17. All Li’l Lucky participants will earn a finisher medal. DETAILS
