To finish a 5K it takes will, determination, and a little bit of luck. Nacogdoches United Runners or NUR are hosting a 5K and a 1-mile family/walkers fun run just before St. Patricks Day on Saturday, March 12th, 2022.

If you don't think a 5K can be fun, Fredonia Brewery has pitched in a free beer for every participant. If you think that might be counterintuitive to fitness, many runners know the benefits of a cold one after a run.

Running a 5K effectively revs up your metabolism to the point that you won't have much if any of the effects of the alcohol, within reason. That way you can just focus on the taste.

Nacogdoches St. Patricks Day Fun Run Route 

The route of the 5K will take you around all of the parks in the downtown Nacogdoches area. Parts of the route follow North University Drive.

You can take a look at the route when you sign up at the link to get a better idea of the elevation. There are many hills in that area that make it more challenging.

The one-mile route is just straight up Mound Street. That one is pretty easy to remember, but there will be signs and assistance along the way to help everyone in both runs.
