Out of an abundance of caution, The Colorado Springs Saint Patrick’s Day Parade Committee and The Grand Prix of Running have decided to cancel the 2020 Saint Patrick’s Day Parade and postpone the sports expo, running, and cycling events.
This decision was made with understanding of the concerns in the community and not because of any change in risk levels to our community.
Those who have registered to participate the Grand Prix Sports Expo, Cycling Events, or Parade will be receiving further communication in the coming days regarding the rescheduling of events and their registration status for those events.
PARADE CANCELLED - SPORTING EVENTS POSTPONED
5K for St. Patrick’s Day Run
A flat, easy route to ease you back into the running season on one of the fastest 5K courses in Colorado Springs! Starting and ending at Acacia Park (Tejon and Bijou Streets) the course runs through downtown Colorado Springs mainly on Tejon Street. Come for the Run, and stay for the Parade that follows at Noon! No Pets or Wheels of any kind allowed in the runs. Sorry, No refunds.
Leprechaun Fun Runs
For the wee ones to take part, we have two heats that run up and back on Tejon Street starting and ending at Acacia Park. A One Mile course for youngsters age 6 to 12, and a Half-Mile course for those 5 and under. A parent may tag along with the 5 and under runners. Make sure to be at Tejon and Bijou for the 11:00 start! Registration IS REQUIRED for all children to participate! Kids get a T-shirt and a ribbon! Sorry, no refunds.
Pedalin’ for St. Pats
If you are into Cycling, we have three courses to choose from to start your day! The three courses range from a family friendly course, and intermediate course, and a grueling (but amazing) ride from Downtown to the top of Woodmen at Blodgett Peak and returning for a party and ride IN the parade. All riders depart from Sahwatch and Colorado, just behind the Pikes Peak Center, and arrive at Nevada and Bijou in Acacia Park. Maps (course cues) will be available for all three courses at the St.Paddy’s Day Sports Expo on March 13th, 2020.
