There’s no shortage of St. Patrick’s Day-themed races in Canada.

This year’s celebration occurs on March 17, a Saturday, while a number of themed road races fall on the Sunday, the more traditional weekend day for running events.

Whether it’s to bounce back from the previous night’s festivities or to start the day off with a race, here’s a (non-exhaustive) list of St. Patrick’s Day road races (and one trail race) across the country.
