Race Preview: 2021 iRun for Kids 5K / 10K / 15K (Albany)


This is a real, live, in-person race happing in mid-March; plus it’s for a great cause! The 2021 iRun for Kids event will have 15K, 10K, and 5K course options and of course, the Little Leprechaun Kids Dash. In its 17th year, this race benefits the Albany Public Schools Foundation; a qualified 501c(3) supporting arts, music, science, and health and wellness for students in the Greater Albany Public School District.

The 15K, 10K, and 5K routes are all their own, so there are no repeating loops or out and backs, which will help with physical distancing while running. The 15K will have 4 water stations, the 10K will have 3, and the 5K will have 1 on course. You can check out the course maps here.

This race is walker-friendly, stroller-friendly, dog-friendly, and there will be pizza at the end for finishers. For more information about prizes, swag, packet pickup, past photos, etc. be sure to check out their website!
