16th Annual ShamRock & Roll 5k Run/Walk

UPDATE:  Kelly unfortunately can't make the race, so I (Chris) will organize.  I plan to hang out by Toad's Place before the race, and will start milling about the start line 15 minutes before the start time.  Text me at[masked] to find us.

 

99.1PLR ShamRock & Roll 5K is fun way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. The race will once again be held at the legendary Toad's Place, 300 York Street, New Haven, CT. The race features on course entertainment and live music at the post race party. Technical running shirts given to the first 2,000 participants.

I've done this race several years in a row.  It's a blast every year.  People wear crazy costumes and everyone just has a great time.  Join my fundraising team at http://www.active.com/donate/diaperbank13/kellybrogdon to help raise money for The Diaper Bank.

Register for the race at http://www.jbsports.com/?page_id=125.  This race is very crowded so finding a meeting place will be a challenge.

    Hey guys and gals, I am still struggling with a nasty cold so I will have to miss this race. I'm very disappointed since this is my favorite race every year. I hope you all still go!

    I did it last year. I had so much fun. I am looking forward to see all the cool Saint Patricks Day costumes and having a cold beer at the end of the race at Toads Place...
