HOW DO I GET ONE OF THOSE GREAT ST PATTYS DAY MILE TECHNICAL SHIRTS & ALLSPORTCENTRAL DRAWSTRING BAGS? Those who register online at least 4 weeks prior to race day will get the first crack at the technical shirts. The remaining shirt sizes are subject to availability and will be handed out on a first come first serve basis based on online registration date. When we are out of shirts participants will be able to select an available shirt from a past event or wait for us to re-order the current year's shirts following the event. Photos below are the 2017 event shirts. Late registrants will receive an email when the shirts arrive they will then be given the option of picking up the shirt at the AllSportCentral offices or pay to have it shipped. While supplies last, the first participants that pickup your packet on Thursday or Friday and will get the AllSportCentral drawstring bag. If you pickup your packet on race day you will not get the AllSportCentral drawstring bag.
PARADE BUTTONS? Purchase of a St Patrick's Day Parade button during registration is required by each runner participating in our signature St Pattys Day Mile (SPDM) 1 Mile Run. Our SPDM 1 Mile runners are the 'first float' of this iconic downtown Sioux Falls parade! Each year, Phillips Avenue is lined with spectators ready to cheer.
If you are only running in the 5 Mile or 5K Run or both of these events but not our signature SPDM 1 Mile Run, purchase of a St Patrick's Day Parade button is not mandatory. Additional buttons can be purchased during online registration, if needed.
