Killian’s Kilt Run/Walk

Lace up your sneakers and grab your kilt! Saturday, August 10th 10:00AM

It would be hard to imagine a more appropriate time to sport the old kilt than participating in a true Irishfest La Crosse sporting event. Irishfest La Crosse and Killian’s Irish Red Lager proudly present the Third Annual Killian’s 5K Kilt Run/Walk.

The Killian’s 5K Kilt Run/Walk will proceed along the beautiful, scenic Riverside Park Trail on Saturday, August 10th. The run/walk is not intended to be a race or feat of strength. Participants needing a rest are encouraged to do so. A limited supply of Killian’s Irish Red will be available at the finish line for participants who are 21 years of age or older, so don’t rest too long.

Kilts are encouraged, but are not mandatory. All participants in a kilt will be eligible to win a Killian’s Irish Red/Irishfest La Crosse Prize Package! Homemade kilts count too! If you choose not to wear a kilt, please show your Irish spirit in your own unique way.
