The folks in Raleigh, NC, will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest number of kilted runners at this year’s St. Paddy’s Run Green.

On Saturday, March 2nd 2013, the group will try to break the current record held by the Canadians, who gathered 1,089 runners. This will be the first time the record will be attempted in the United States.

The group organizing the event has thought of everything! Realizing that a kilt is probably not the most comfortable of running attire they have organized a 200 meter run/walk, around Moore Square, at 2pm.

Participants can opt to only take part in the 200 meter race or they can go the whole hog and join in on the eight kilometer dash.

This Guinness World Record attempt at 2pm will be followed by the well-established eight kilometer St. Paddy’s Run Green. Now in its fifth year the run has become infamous for its scenic run through historic Oakwood as well as the thousands of runners dressed in kilts and costumes. The main run kicks off at 3pm.

All registrants will receive a tech shirt and beer (21+) post race. What's even better is that all the proceeds from the race will go to charity. The beneficiaries of the race are the MS Society as well as the nOg Run Club which works with 14 different local charities throughout the calendar year.
