For four decades, participants of all abilities have come together on the streets of Chicago to enjoy a fun and healthy way to kick off the outdoor running season and continue Chicago’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. While we can’t be together in person, we’re excited for a new take on an old tradition.
The journey to race weekend will kick off on Monday, January 25 with an 8-week Training Challenge. Shufflers will be supported every step of the way as they take on the Nike Training Program and tackle weekly mileage challenges with the ultimate goal of getting the best version of themselves across their own finish line.
Race weekend will kick off on Friday, March 19, and culminate on Sunday, March 21, as Shufflers compete with friends and family in a variety of virtual races (8K, 2-Mile walk or The Mile) in the neighborhoods across the city and around the world.
We will be to continue to connect sponsors and brands to our Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle audience through our channels below.
