RUNNING

/TC Runners in the Oriole Advocates Home Run 8K on April 4 who also choose to run in the All-Star Game Run on July 11 will be eligible for a grand prize, according to director of both races Les Kinion.

"If you run both, your name will be entered in a drawing for two All-Star Game tickets," Kinion said Sunday. "You don't have to win anything to be entered."

The only stipulation for eligibility is that you enter both races before the running of the Home Run 8K.

"You can't run in the first and then decide to enter the second and be eligible," Kinion said.

For information, call Kinion at (410) 882-5455.

Paint it green

Kinion said Sunday that the St. Patrick's Parade Shamrock Run 5K is on for March 14.

The race, which precedes the Hibernians' annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, begins at Charles and Centre streets and finishes at Market Place.

Entry fees are $13 and $15 on race day.

There will be a random drawing for a trip for two to Ireland or a $500 cash prize, but you must be present to win.

For information, call Kinion.
