Hundreds took to Keller streets during the weekend in two holiday races.

Runners took off from Shannon Brewing Company on Saturday morning and celebrated finishing the St. Patrick’s Day 5K with a frothy pint or two.

More than 600 athletes competed in the St. Patrick’s Day Sprint Triathlon on Sunday in Keller, including Police Chief, Public Safety Director and Interim City Manager Mark Hafner. Competitors swam 300 meters, biked 12.6 miles and ran 3.1 miles in the “official kick-off to the Dallas-Fort Worth triathlon season.”
