(CBS) Registration is open for the 2017 Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K, which will be held on April 2.
The annual road race is held in the heart of downtown Chicago with a green-infused St. Patrick’s Day theme, and it starts and ends in Grant Park. This year’s event for the first time will also feature a two-mile walk.
Runners can register online at shamrockshuffle.com.
“The Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K is an event that is a true reflection of the Chicago running community,” executive race director Carey Pinkowski said. “Each year, we see the excitement of individuals as they line up at the start line, ready to take on their first road race, tackle a new PR or find a healthy way to continue the St. Patrick’s Day celebration with their family and friends. The celebration will be here before we know it – it’s never too early to think green!”
