Join the Shiver Me Shamrocks 5k Run/Walk in Rutland

UPDATE 3/12/2020: In order to be in compliance with recommendations from health officials, we wanted to make you aware of some important changes:

There will be no race day registration, only runners/walkers that have pre-registered online will have bibs for the event. The packet pick up location has moved! Please pick up your pre-registered packet at the starting line on Center St. between noon and 1pm on Saturday.

Organizers have made the difficult decision to cancel the after-party at the Hop’n Moose. However, each race participant will receive one drink ticket on their bib and the proprietors and generous sponsor have agreed to honor your drink ticket at any time for the next 90 days when you visit Hop’n Moose for your dining pleasure. The Hop’n Moose will be open to the public during their normal operating hours on Saturday.

Saturday, March 14 at 1 p.m.—RUTLAND—Kick off St. Patrick’s Day weekend by running or walking in the 7th annual Shiver Me Shamrocks St. Patty’s Day 5K Run/Walk to benefit Come Alive Outside.
The first 200 registered runners/walkers will receive a free winter hat. Every registered runner and walker will receive a drink ticket to be used at Hop n’ Moose during the after party.
Day of registration is $40 and will be available at the Heritage Family Credit Union, 50 West Street, at noon.

There is a 60-minute time limit to walk or run the 5k. Race support will be pulled at 2 p.m..

Kids will begin the day with the free Leprechaun Leap fun run down Center Street at 1 p.m. After your run, get hydrated and stay for the post-race party at The Hop’n Moose downtown. There will be music, drink and food specials and lots of fun. Even if you aren’t running or walking plan to stop down and celebrate!

Race prizes for overall first place and first place in each age group will be announced at the after party. Men’s, women’s and kid’s Best Costume will also be awarded at the after party, so be sure to wear your green.

No dogs allowed. Strollers are highly discouraged due to the poor road and sidewalk conditions this time of year. For more information visit facebook.com/shivermeshamrocks.
