The Iron Horse Brewery is bringing the St. Paddy Day Half K back to Boise! “Yes. .5K. ⅓ of a mile- because running is hard.” Their goal is to raise $2,000 in two hours for the Idaho Foodbank. Even though the race only takes about 10 minutes, there will also be pizza, face painting, Zumba, and raffles! To get you warmed up and ready to run there will be a Celtic Rock Band performance!
