Fat Ass 5K
May 12 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
The Fat Ass 5K & Street Party for Charity was invented on a napkin at Celtic Mist Pub on St. Patrick’s Day in 2008. We are a professionally timed 5K race through Downtown Springfield, Illinois. The race includes beer, corn dog, donut, and ice cream stops along with live music and entertainment throughout the race route. The 5K is followed by a street party that includes cold Pepsi, Coors beer, barbecue and more live music. All profits go to charity.
