Registration is now open for the St. Paddy’s Day 5K, an annual offering of the Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce.

The March 16 event is open to runners, walkers, parents pushing strollers and those with pets on a leash. It can be a colorful affair, with many taking the opportunity to go green.

There’s a new location this time around, with everyone departing from the south gate at the Enumclaw Expo Center. A special “kiddie dash” will begin at 9 a.m. and the 5K will get rolling at 9:30.

The current early-registration entry fee is $30, which includes a race T-shirt, breakfast pastry and a goodie bag. The fee jumps to $40 the morning of the event. To guarantee T-shirt availability, register by Thursday, Feb. 21.

To register, visit www.enumclawchamber.com and click under “featured events.”
