Get your Irish on at the Spectrum Health 5K Irish Jig

St. Patrick's Day is always a great time of celebration and fun!

This year, why not start your St. Patty's Day celebration with the Irish Jig 5-K Race!

Now in its 35th year, the Irish Jig 5-K is a great way to kick off your running season while raising awareness for colorectal cancer and screenings.
