Time is running out for early registration for the Fourth Annual Oak Forest Fleadh 5K, which will take place March 9. With an extra $5 fee, participants who register early will receive a special, long-sleeved dry-tech shirt.
Without the shirt, early registration costs $30. Online registration for early birds is currently available through the city's website.
Registration the day of the race is $35 and can be done in the Arbor commuter parking lot at the southwest corner of 159th Street and Cicero Avenue, across from the Oak Forest Metra station.
All participants are asked to bring at least one non-perishable food product to donate to the St. Damian Food Pantry. Specifically, participants are asked to bring jelly, peanut butter, pasta sauce and cereal.
During the race, strollers and walkers are allowed, but at the back of the pack. Skates, roller blades, skateboards, bikes and dogs are not allowed on the course.
Packet pick-up for registered runners will be March 7, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and March 8, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., at CNB Bank, 5459 W. 159th Street.
After the race, the top three finishers in each age group, along with the top three overall finishers, will receive awards.
