The nOg Run Club, creators of the fairly epic World's Largest Flip Flop 1K and Oktoberfest 4 Miler, invite you to join us for the 13th running of the St. Paddy's 4 Miler. Don your best kilt for a day of running and friendly fun in downtown Raleigh
***Strollers are allowed but you must start in the back for the safety of all the runners.  The city of Raleigh requires participants to keep at least a 16 minute mile pace.  If you fall behind this pace, the police may ask you to walk/run on the sidewalk to reopen roads. 

The St. Paddy's 4 Miler is produced by volunteers and we donate 100% of the money back to local nonprofits via the nOg Run Club's Charity Nights.  There are NO REFUNDS or DEFERRALS to other races for this fundraising event. The St. Paddy's 4 Miler is a USATF sanctioned event.  The St. Paddy's 4 Miler virutal option is NOT sanctioned by USATF and you will be running at your own risk.

COVID Precautions:

The safety of our participants, vendors, and spectators are very important to us.  Spectators, media, and vendors would be considered in the Level 1 / Low Risk category, as long as a social distancing plan is available for their specific areas of the venue.

How to Upload your Time for the Virtual 4 Miler:

There are 2 ways to get your virtual run time into the online results:

Use the "IYR Virtual" mobile app.  The app uses your smartphone's GPS to track your run and display your route, distance, speed and pace.  The app notifies you when you have completed your distance and prompts you to upload your time into the online results.  You can even upload a selfie/photo that will appear in your results.  

How to use the app:

If you choose not to use the app, plan or find a course of the correct distance and time your run however you want:  your watch, MapMyRun, Strava, etc.  When you've completed your run, go to the online race results for your distance, find your name, and click the "Update Time" button and enter your time.
