Introducing the 2 mile Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle walk
The 2017 Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K will host a 2 mile untimed walk. Walkers will be treated to a scenic 2 mile course along Chicago’s lakefront, starting and finishing in the same location as the 8K run. The walk is a perfect introduction to the Shamrock Shuffle and is ideal for aspiring runners or those looking to take part in the celebration without tackling an 8K (4.97 miles).
Registration for the walk will close once the event has reached the 1,500-person capacity.
