St. Paddy's Day may have passed, but the 13th annual St. Paddy’s Day 5k is still set to send runners on a tour of Bordentown City on April 11. The original race date, March 21, was cancelled due to snow.

The race, which takes runners through the streets of Bordentown City, is an annual event hosted by the Bordentown Education Foundation. The proceeds of the race will go to helping teachers buy learning equipment as well as funding scholarships for students.

In addition to the 5k run, the event also features a Family Fun Walk for those who enjoy a more leisurely pace.

Runners in the 5k will be fitted with a radio-frequency identification chip that will acutely calculate when the runner begins and when he crosses the finish line.

The top three male and female runners in their age group will be given prizes. First place winners will be awarded a $100 gift card; second place winners will receive a $75 gift card, and third place winners will get a $50 gift card. Medals will also be awarded to the top three finishers.

In person signups are set to begin at 7 a.m. April 11, the day of the race, at Clara Barton Elementary School. The 5k race is set to begin at 9 a.m., with the Family Fun Walk starting at 10. Registration for the 5k cost $25; for the walk, the cost is $20 for adults and $10 for children.

Water will be available on the course, and after the race, fresh fruit and bagels will be available to all participants for free. Dogs and other pets are not allowed to take part in the race, and those who bring baby carriages are asked to stay behind the runners.
