McGuire's St. Patrick's Day 5k
Not worth doing. - 2014 Race
By: D. O. - (Pensacola, FL)
This race was supposed to be about guessing your time and finishing as close as possible, without timers or watches. About 80% of the people were timing the race and checking phones and watches to see if they needed to speed up or slow down. Do this race for fun only. It's not even being monitored for cheating. Real disappointed in this race.

New Family Tradition ~ Navarre in May - 2013 Race
By: J. W. - (Chattanooga, TN)
This was our first experience and we are now 100% devoted. First class all the way and a model to other Race Directors and committees. Run the race, experience everything, take notes! We are making plans now for 2014 race and can't wait! Thanks to all involved! Well Done!

McGuire's St. Patrick's Day 5k
Loved the race - 2013 Race
By: Strick S. - (Opp, AL)
This is a big party, with lots of costumes. Come with fun on your mind. If you want to seriously run,get there early and start up front. This race is a fund raiser for our injured military. McGuires does a great job!! I've been doing this event for the last 5 years and it's a blast every year! Sure it's crowded, but never a dull moment.
