The Radar: Follow the Pot of Gold to the 29th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Dash

Normally I’d say something pun-y here, probably something to do with the color green, luck of the Irish or Leprechauns, but instead I’m just going to cut to the race. Err, chase.

The 29th annual F5 St. Patrick’s Day Dash (about 4 miles from start to finish) is set for Sunday, Mar. 17 under the shadow of the Space Needle at the Seattle Center where an expected 17,000 person sea of green will come out in support of the Detlef Schrempf Foundation.

Register now and aim to get first place in the costume contest on race day or, let’s be real here, first to the beer garden (featuring Red Hook).
