Coming March 18, 2018. Get your green on! It’s the West End St. Patrick’s 5K in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The streets will be closed, and the 5K course is a fast, flat one through quaint neighborhoods with brick row houses. The big St. Patrick’s Day parade is scheduled after the race so there will be plenty of people lining the streets and cheering you on. Sounds like a fun way to spend St. Paddy’s Day!
