Wearin' of the Green 5K

St. Patrick’s Day may primarily be associated in the United States with good-natured carousing, leprechauns, and hunting for that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but there’s no question the No. 1 priority is avoiding those pinching fingers of well-meaning friends! And that means remembering to wear something green. But here’s some good Irish luck: Molly’s pub in Warrenton will guarantee you stay out of harm’s way with the Wearin’ of the Green 5K – it’s a race and a celebration in one, and it’s all for a very, very good cause.

It’s Easy Being Green

The annual Molly’s 5K run is March 24 this year; check-in begins at 7 a.m., and the race starts promptly at 8 a.m. Registration costs $30 and includes a T-shirt, but you’ll want to hit the starting line dressed in your best St. Paddy’s Day green. Runners in previous years have jogged the spirited three-mile course in green tutus, green boxer shorts, and even green bow ties – the more fun, the better! Make sure you’re in peak shape: Molly’s is open for breakfast immediately following the race, so you’ll want to be among the first to the finish line.

Helping Heroes

Wearin’ of the Green may be all about a good time, but it’s also for a seriously good purpose: Race fees raise awareness and funds for Boulder Crest retreat, an organization “committed to improving the physical, emotional, spiritual, and economic well-being of our nation’s military, veterans, first responders, and their family members.” Set in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the retreat provides a wide range of activities – equine therapy, culinary therapy, meditation, art therapy, and more – meant to improve the lives of these heroic men and women and their families.
