Ras na Heireann USA 5k
"The Ras" is the most authentic St. Padraigs Road Race west of Dublin, Ireland. Join us for a grand run around Somerville and then celebrate in the 17 post race pubs.
Somerville, MA welcomes the Ras na Heireann road race each year as a celebration of St. Patrick's Day, all things Irish, and the coming Spring. It is the sister race to the annual Ras na hEireann International Cross Country race held in Termonfechin, County Louth, Republic of Ireland.
The race is capped at 5,000 participants and has sold out early for the last eight years, so best to register earlier rather than risk missing the Craic (aka the party!)
