Holyoke St. Patrick's Day 10k

Ethiopians reigned supreme in the Holyoke St. Patrick’s Day 10K in Holyoke, Mass., Sat., March 21.

Haille Mengesha, 29, of Ethiopia ran 29:57 to win the men’s race ahead of Moroccan runners Jaqual El Jazouli, 30, and Mourad Marofit, 32, who finished second and third in 30:13 and 31:02 respectively.

In the women’s race, Ethiopians swept the top three places as Etaemahu Hagtewold, 26, ran 33:10, Genet Beyene, who’s only 20, was second in 33:14, and Goshu Frehiwat, 24, finished third in 35:00.

This was the 40th running of the Holyoke St. Patrick’s Day 10K.

 

 

People may be doing the St. Patty's pub crawl in the evening, but the Holyoke race has all ears, eyes and feet during the day. The weather is ideal this time of year. Race goers call this fast course a miniature Boston. The streets will be packed with spectators and it's not too far off to say that this town goes a little bit crazy for the St. Patrick's Day run.
