St. Patty's Green 5k

Event Overview

St. Patricks Day

Saturday, March 9th

Willow Creek Park – Saginaw
101 Knowles Dr.
Saginaw, TX 76179

8:00 a.m. – Check in/Registration
8:30 a.m. – 5k Start

Start/Finish Line
The race will begin at the large pavilion located on the north end of the park near the baseball fields. The race will also conclude at the same location.

There are several parking lots that outline the park course. Overflow parking will be at the Saginaw Recreation Center located at 633 W. McLeroy Blvd. Saginaw, TX  76179. 

*Please note that online registration will close at midnight on Wednesday, March 6th and will reopen again the morning of the event.  Walk up participants are welcome and will need to arrive at 8:00 a.m. to ensure a proper start time. 


This is not your average 5k! Lace up your running shoes and join us for our inaugural “GREEN” themed St. Patty’s Day 5k. Dress in your best green gear and get in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day. This event will be timed and certified by Cox Racing Services.

With every step you take you are helping in the fight to find a cure for cystic fibrosis.


Awards and other event details

There will be an awards ceremony following the run. We anticipate the ceremony will begin at 10:00 a.m. and it will be held at the large pavilion. Top male and female winners in each age group will be announced. There will also be an award for the best dressed St. Patty’s outfit.

Breakfast and snacks will be served before and after the run. The course is still being finalized by the timing company, but proves to be very flat. Stay tuned for updates to the course and other event details.

Important note on attendance for people with CF and their families:
The health and well-being of people with cystic fibrosis is our top priority. Medical evidence shows that certain bacteria can be passed between individuals who have CF and can lead to worse symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To limit the serious risk of cross-infection between people with CF, only one person with CF may be invited to attend the indoor portion of each CF Foundation-sponsored event.  For the outdoor portion of the event, people with CF should maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other.

Please note: People with CF and their families should be aware that individuals with CF might choose to attend Foundation events or meetings without notifying event organizers. We strongly discourage this; however, we cannot guarantee that only one person with CF will be present at any indoor Foundation event. For more information, please call your local chapter.
