We are excited to partner with RunningWorks for the third year in a row! RunningWorks is a non-profit running program founded to use sport to empower individuals and families to break cycles of abuse, neglect, poverty and homelessness – one stride at a time.
Their vision is to stop the destructive cycle of homelessness before it starts by reaching the most vulnerable and socially excluded with values accrued through running – skills they can use to further their lives.
Their core values include respect, discipline, teamwork, accountability, honesty, dependability, education, endurance, family, morality, commitment, independence, giving, service, trust, volunteerism, and willingness. Displaying our core values helps break the stigma associated with homelessness
You need three S’s when it comes to race day. Selfies. Sweat. and SWAG!! You don’t have to worry one bit when it come’s to the swag department at our races.
All 4 Miler participants will receive a finisher’s medal. The medal will be one of six collectors medals. Run all races in the Six Pack Race Series and connect them to make one HUGE medal!
The 2018 Shamrock 4 Miler shirts are in the process of being designed!
