Collar City Kilt Fest 2016

collar city kilt fest logoThe Collar City Kilt Fest returns to downtown Troy Saturday, March 5 with its 5k race and other festivities. Blurbage:

This healthy challenge will have surprises in every mile. Leprechauns will be there to tease, taunt and temp as you run throught the city of Troy collecting coins that you can cash in at the finish line for prizes. Be quick because the fastest runners will have the choice of the best prizes. The first 10 that cross the finish line will be awarded an additional special coin for elite prizes.The day includes a scenic 5k Kilt Run/Walk through the city ending at the party that hosts music, food and entertainment. The city is yours to explore with the City Pass. The pass makes you a Troy VIP with access to tastings and treats and special discounts in many of our unique Troy venues.

Registration for the 5k is $30, and includes the city pass. If you'd just like the city pass without the 5k, it's $20.
