Let’s play a game where we avoid mentioning the reason why this is the second time in three years that we have prepared to host the 6th now not annual St. Paddy’s Half K. Ready, go.
That was surprisingly easy. Kind of like “running” 0.310686 of a mile. Which is why we host this spectacle of sport. Part of our mission is creating happy fun times, not sustainedly increased heart rates.
Here’s the download on the day:
11:00: Drink free coffee provided by D & M Coffee while registerering
Noon: Group stretch it out with Brewer and Track Coach Josh
12:15: Half K heats begin
1:30-3:00: Live music with Celtic Jam Group
4:00 – 6:00: More live music with Killdeer String Band
8:00: [ the tap room ] closes
Plus a bunch of stuff sprinkled in throughout the day, such as but not limited to:
Festive costume contests and other shenanigans for prizes because, “I have a buttload of growlers to giveaway,” said Christina.
More info you crave?
Your ticket includes:
One aluminum Irish Death pint
One beer ticket
One Irish Death handkerchief made just for this event by Shirtworks
Kids are cool. In general, and they are very welcome at this event. If you bring some, they may need to run the course more than once to get sufficiently tuckered out. There will also be games kids like.
You know who else is cool? And so much more helpful than children? Sponsors. When the Irish Death logo shaped Bat Signal lit up the Kittitas Valley sky, local heroes of the business community responded. Not sure where we’re going with this metaphor from here, but just be sure to seek these fine providers of good goods and local services when you need stuff and things.
And if all of this wasn’t compelling enough to entice you to join us for a day of great beer, local community connection, and below average athletic requirements, the proceeds are going to the wonderful FISH Community Food Bank.
