March 1 registration for St Patrick’s Day three-legged race: participation limited to 100 pairs

Make sure you’re ready with your Mobilepay details at midday on March or you might miss out

For the first time in its history, it will not be possible to register to compete in the St Patrick’s Day three-legged race on the big day itself.

Instead, pre-race registration for Shamrock Love’s 3 Legged Charity Race 2022 will take place on the event’s website from 12:00 on March 1 due to the limited numbers allowed to take part.

There is only space for 100 pairs to take part, the organisers have confirmed today so 200 racers in total.

MobilePay crucial
Pre-race registration will cost a minimum of 100 kroner per racer there is no limit on how much each racer can donate and must be carried out using MobilePay. The number will be confirmed on March 1. 

This could be problematic for anyone hoping to register from abroad, so don’t be surprised if Stockholm Seamu, Dublin Dermot or Oslo Orla enlists you into helping them. 

Thanks to sponsor Guinness, the entire donation goes to charity.

Three charities again
This year the race will again be supporting three children’s charities: Danske Hospitalsklovne, Laura Lynn Children’s Hospice and CCAFO (Camdodian Children’s Advocacy Foundation Organization). 

The race has been supporting the charities since 2012, 2015 and 2010 respectively, raising 138,700, 86,700 and 164,700 kroner for them.

Since its inception in 2001, the race has raised 556,700 kroner for charity. 

Five pub pitstops
This year, the race will begin at Kennedy’s Irish Bar at 14:00 and head to The Shamrock Inn,  Pub & Sport, The Globe and finally The Dubliner. 

Racers are advised to head to Kennedy’s from around 13:00 to collect their 3LR packs and start practising.

The principal organiser is Siobhán Kelleher-Petersen, one of the three co-founders of the race, who is the sister of Globe quizmaster John Kelleher.
