The first of four St. Patrick’s Day themed O’races starts and finishes outside Kinsmen Brewing Company, just steps from the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail. A fast 3.1 mile course through rural roads in Southington and Cheshire brings runners back to the festivities at the brewery and taproom. This party of a road race is not to be missed – costumes always encouraged!
Swag includes St. Paddy’s themed drinkware. Participants 21+ (with ID) also enjoy an ice cold craft beer from Kinsmen Brewing and everyone re-fuels with fresh hot pizza from Sauced at Kinsmen.
