The Irish American Heritage Museum, in partnership with the Downtown Albany BID and Albany Running Exchange Event Promotions, presents the second annual Irish Sweat-er 5K. This fun run for all ages takes place along the route of the 69th Annual Albany St. Patrick’s Day Parade, just before the parade steps off at 2:00 PM.

All runners will receive a free gift with registration and an invitation to the post-race celebration at the Irish American Heritage Museum, located at 370 Broadway in Albany. Runners are encouraged to sign up as teams, with a special discounted rate available to registrants who refer three or more friends.

Proceeds from the race will benefit the Irish American Heritage Museum, a permanently chartered 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and telling the story of the contributions of the Irish people and their culture in America. The Museum provides year-round access to exhibits and the Pat O’Dwyer Library, as well as lectures, presentations, film screenings, book signings, and other special programs.
