You'd be hard-pressed to find a major U.S. city more closely associated with St. Patrick's Day celebrations than Chicago. The 15th ANNUAL ST. PADDY'S 5K & 8K RUN/WALK — a spring favorite among Chicago's running community — is an excellent way to kick off your 2015 outdoor running season!

5K & 8K runs will help to jump-start the outdoor running season with the first 8K of 2015.

The St. Paddy's Day 5K/8K Run/Walk is honored to support the Greater Chicago Food Depository, Chicago’s food bank, a nonprofit food distribution and training left providing food for hungry people while striving to end hunger in our community. The Food Depository, founded in 1979, makes a daily impact across Cook County with a network of 650 pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, mobile programs, children’s programs, older adult programs and innovative responses that address the root causes of hunger. Last year, the Food Depository distributed 66 million pounds of shelf-stable food, fresh produce, dairy products and meat, the equivalent of 150,000 meals every day.
