The 8th Annual Steve Haydu St. Patrick’s Day LoTideRun will be held Saturday, March 17, 2012 beginning at 8:45 am in Carolina Beach, NC. The proceeds will be given to one or more cancer patients and families. This is the 8th year of the race to benefit local recipients who are fighting cancer and have no insurance. We have grown from 157 runners in 2005 to nearly 1400 runners in 2009. Our race had become a favorite of serious runners as well as those just out to have a good time and support a great cause. This is a wonderful opportunity to show your support for our community.
The 8th Annual Steve Haydu St. Patrick’s Lo Tide Run has added a new element to its already great tradition of a great time for a great cause – an After Party Event for the whole family. This year there will be arts and crafts vendors, food vendors, and alcohol at the Carolina Beach Gazebo area from 8am-7pm. Edge Entertainment’s DJ Mike Worley will be playing your favorite music from 8am until 12:30pm. At 1pm the event is turned into a ticketed event featuring a mixture of live music from some great local musicians, a family fun Zone operated by Island Drop-n-Play with activities supplied by the Boardwalk Makeover, and lots of surprises.
The Live Music line-up has a mixture of Irish bands and music that will get you dancing and in the festive St.
Patty’s Day mood. The Malones and the Blarney Broughs will fill you with Irish pride by playing their versions of Irish classics, and maybe some of their own Irish jigs. Root Soul Project and Mark Roberts and the Breeze will play a wide assortment of cover tunes from your favorite artists from yesterday and today.
