THE EVENTS

SATURDAY, MARCH 19, 2022

Presented by BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina

Get to the Green Road Race

THE STARTING LINE FOR ST. PAT’S FUN!

10K - 7:30 A.M.
5K - 7:45 A.M.
1-Mile Family Fun Run - 8:00 A.M.

Kick off St. Pat’s in Five Points with Columbia’s largest road race! Get to the Green features a 5K, 10K and 1-Mile Family Fun Run in which participants chase rainbows in pursuit of their personal pot o’gold! 

Get to the Green is turning twenty this year, and over 50,000 runners have competed for their Pot O’ Gold! What started on Devine Street adjacent to Maxcy Gregg Park has grown into a 2,500-member race that kicks off St. Pat’s in Five Points! It has morphed over two decades adding a 15K option for a few years and changing routes a few times, but the goal of celebrating all things green and Gaelic has never changed!

 Race registration includes a 2022 t-shirt, finisher’s medal, post-race refreshments from Earth Fare, Pepsi Co and Vooz and entry into the St. Pat’s in Five Points festival! All events start and finish on Devine Street near Publick House in Shandon. Costumes and good luck charms are welcomed and encouraged! Get to the Green 5K and 10K are USATF certified courses. Gift registrations can also be purchased and transfers are welcome.

Prizes will be given out for Top Finishers in each category as well as Best Green/St. Pat’s Theme costumes! The awards ceremony will take place at approximately 9:30am and is not inside the festival gates.
