Wear Green for the St. Patrick’s Day Half Marathon March 11
Go look for leprechauns in the park for St. Patrick’s Day, and go for a run or a walk at the half marathon. This family-friendly event includes a Kids Dash Run/Walk, so everybody can participate.
St. Patrick’s Half Marathon and 5K
The first 1,000 people to sign up for the half marathon will get a free pint glass, which you'll need on St. Patrick's Day. Proceeds for the event help support the Dream Factory of Louisville, a local organization that grants wishes for children in need in the community. There are awards for the top finishers in the half marathon, and every kid who participates in the Kids Dash will get a ribbon when they cross the finish line.
The Kids Dash begins at 8:15 am. The half marathon and 5K begins at 8:30 am. Be at Beckley Creek Park at 1411 Beckley Creek Parkway for the run. Registration is $50 per person for the half marathon. Beckley Creek Park is just outside Middletown, right across from the famous Valhalla Golf Club. Spend some time in this neighborhood, and you might also be convinced that it’s rather heavenly here.
Run Around in Middletown
Even if you aren't looking for a beautiful family home, you've found a neighborhood that's full of them -- and you won't be able to help but look. Middletown is packed with great homes, many styled in traditional and contemporary architecture. Brick homes are common in Middletown, where there are lots of sidewalks, big yards and the thing all families want the most: space.
Big family homes with multiple bedrooms and attached garages are the norm here, and that's why so many families choose Middletown. This neighborhood also has plenty of other stuff that families want, from places to have fun to places to eat and shop to great schools. Run around the park while wearing your St. Patrick's Day green, and then run on over to Middletown to see why this might be the perfect neighborhood for your family, too.
