Join us for beer, running, beer, walking, beer, stumbling, beer & partying at Sportscore One! This year we want to make your experience even more fun and enjoyable! Post Race Party will be indoors at our new location at Sportscore One in the Soccer Center!

The festivities begin Saturday, March 16th at 12:00pm at the Sportscore! The walk/run starts at 12:00 Noon and we'll keep the party going until 3pm this year! Shamrock On Line Auction will be in full swing. Don't forget to Shoot the Shillelagh!

All registered participants get a souvenir beer glass, Shamrock Beer Run long-sleeve T-shirt and an event medal for completing the course.

This is a race course like no other! We feature 4 local craft breweries along the course route, so participants receive an (optional) 3 ounce sample from each brewery along the route, and are greeted with a 16oz pint of their favorite choice at the finish line!
