Ok, one & all … mark your calendars for the next Harrigan’s 5k Charity Run: March 14, 2015. We are looking forward to it and hope you are as well.

On behalf of the charities, thanks for being there with us!

We sure had a lovely spring day for a run, didn’t we?

Results have been posted at

If you earned a medal but were not present to receive the award, head over to Up & Running. They will have the final results sheets and can give you your medal.

Even though we had 20 random names, not enough were present to claim all of the donated prizes. The one unclaimed prize, an AMAZING $500 gift certificate from James Free Jewelers, goes belatedly to David Eviston, Enon, Ohio.

It was another great year for the charities. We do not have the final amount raised, but to give you an idea of what this is about, since 2009 we have raised nearly $70,000 for our charities.

Nice! Thanks for helping us make it happen.

See you again next year.

Four days to the run …

Hey all runners & walkers – here is the final update before the 2014 Harrigan’s 5k Charity Run. Get your green on for the party!

Great to see the forecast is for good running weather – typically cool, overcast spring day and no rain.

Please come to early packet pickup if you can – much easier than dealing with all those darn runners in the registration tent on race day. Up & Running, Thursday & Friday evening 4-7 pm.

Be sure to get your parking info ahead of time, and PLEASE respect the fact that our local retailers need a few parking slots in front of their stores for their actual customers.

Shirts are done and look gorgeous – the nicest we have ever brought to you (just our opinion, of course)

Schedule of events:

7:30   Registration opens under the big tent at Harrigan’s Tavern + music by South Community starts

8:00   Marshall Road closes to through traffic

9:00   Volunteers to be on stations around the course

9:15    Course Marshall verifies the course is ready

9:30   Race starts

10:30   Prizes are awarded (shoes, gift certificates)

10:45   Medal ceremony


We will have 6 volunteers to guide you. There is quite a bit of convenient side street parking, but Marshall Road will be closed to through traffic (Between Stroop and David) starting at 8:00 am, so plan your approach if side street parking is your choice.

It takes time to get 1100 runners parked, so we recommend early arrival for a stress reduction program.

How great that winter has finally broken in favor of early spring (and running) weather.

The course map has been improved to show the course with each turn marked, mile markers called out, and markers for the start, water stop, and finish. Check it out here.

Within a couple of days each registered runner for which we have a valid e-mail address will receive an update on registration, late registration, early packet pickup, and race day happenings. We will post the same information here and on Facebook, so stay tuned.

Thursday and Friday before the race, 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., at Up and Running, 6123 Far Hills Ave Dayton, OH 45459 937-432-9210

Welcome our new sponsor

We are proud to welcome a generous new corporate sponsor


Hi there – we are getting ready to order the tech shirts, and we thought you might like to see this year’s design. We are excited to head into unexplored territory with black shirts this year – let us know what you think.


Up & Running donates prizes

Up & Running, a Harrigan’s primary sponsor, is back again for 2014, donating a pair of running shoes for one lucky male & one lucky female runner. The winners will be drawn at random from runners that participate on March 22nd.

AF Marathon team back for 2014

Each year, the team from the Air Force Marathon has been at Harrigan’s to enable sign-ups, and they are back again for 2014.

If you are interested, don’t wait until then, but if you have questions they will be at the run to help you out.
