We are not responsible for towing, parking violations, or damages. Parking is very limited and some of the lots require additional walking to the race site. We recommend you grab your running buddies and carpool to the event. We will have volunteers and green event parking signs at each parking lot. For more information, follow us on Instagram for parking instructions on race morning.

It’s time to get the whole family involved! Once you cross the finish line (and snatch your medal), why not participate in a little cool down run with your kids? This non-competitive trot will start the next generation of runners off on the right foot!
The Leprechaun Jog is a 1 mile fun run, that will start and finish at the same spot as the 4 Miler. There will be no race day registration for the Leprechaun Jog. Please be sure you register your child before race day.
Please be at the finish line, with your child, by 8:50 AM. A member from the race team will give the children instructions and lead them to the start line for the Jog.
Let’s make sure you know where you’re going and why you’re doing this!

Pet Policy: Sorry, but you’ll have to leave the pets at home for this race. We all love our animal sidekicks, but sometimes they get a little excited and try to tie up other runners. Don’t worry they will be waiting for you at the finish line!
Course Time Limit: A 75-min (18:45 min/mi) course time limit will be enforced. Runners who fall behind this cutoff may be asked to clear the road for their own safety.
We are excited to partner with RunningWorks for the fourth 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 2019 Shamrock 4 Miler shirts are guaranteed to those registered by March 1st!
