The unprecedented precautions taken by our state to minimize the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic has required us to take a step back and seek alternatives to our race plans. As we follow the guidance of public health officials to safeguard all our supporters and volunteers, we are excited to inform you that we have decided to transition this year’s race into a ❤️VIRTUAL RACE❤️!  During this time of social distancing, the 5K ☘️Shamrock Run☘️ is still hard at work, moving our mission forward. While we’re disappointed that we can’t participate together, we can continue to support one another and move forward in these difficult times to try to bring some normalcy to our lives.




✔️5K SHAMROCK RUN DETAILS (Definitely Wear Your Green!!!)
The virtual race format allows you to do this event wherever you want! A virtual race is a physical run you complete on your own time!!

Thankfully, we can still exercise whenever we wish, as long as we’re obeying social distancing rules. Runners can complete their race anywhere, like parking lots, roads, or on the treadmill.
