First Ever First Annual World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Zero-K, Sponsored by Michelob Ultra

Home / First Ever First Annual World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Zero-K, Sponsored by Michelob Ultra

Want to run/walk, break records and enjoy St. Patrick’s Day festivities? The World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s ZERO-K is PERFECT for you! This race is designed for athletes who do not like to get up early or break a sweat! Kick off your St. Patrick’s weekend with a Zero-K while barely breaking a sweat, then enjoy music and drinks at the PopUp Pub to cool off! All proceeds from the Zero-K will benefit Tri-Lakes CASA, a local nonprofit that recruits, trains and supports volunteer advocates as they give a voice to abused and neglected children in the foster care system. Our race is a 299 foot course- 1 foot shorter than the Granddaddy of all ZERO-K Runs, the Wacky Florida Keys Cow Key Channel Bridge Run, that is 300 feet! The world record for the Florida Keys run is 23.1 seconds their self-timed race. This year YOU will be able to set the time to beat for the future St. Patrick’s ZERO-K runs.

For those who are having trouble finishing the entire 299 feet, a hydration station will be waiting for you at 150 feet! The ZERO-K starts at the Historic Bridge Street, the shortest working street in America, with the end at O’Kelley’s Pub for some additional Hydration!

All participants will receive a race bib, t-shirt and medal for completing the grueling course!

Please Note: THERE WILL BE NO DAY-OF-RACE REGISTRATION! 

The Zero-K will consist of Three Heats:

  • 1st Heat: 1st Place Contenders- Bring your fastest run and try to set a “world” record!
  • 2nd Heat: Leprechaun Dash- Participants are encouraged to dress up in your St. Patrick’s Day finest!
  • 3rd Heat: Last Place- Slowest across while maintaining forward motion- Great for younger kids, pets and the laziest of runners!

Each registration prior to February 28th will include a Race T-Shirt!
