About This Activity

The Shamrock Shuffle 5k+ fun run/walk is hosted and sponsored by UW-Eau Claire’s University Recreation & Sport Facilities department. Our event takes place on March 14th, 2015 and is a great way to kick off your 5k season. The route starts on UW-Eau Claire’s upper campus, down the infamous Garfield Avenue hill, over the scenic university footbridge and follows the river up the beautiful Chippewa Valley River trail. The race is a loop that begins and ends at the McPhee Physical Education Center. Our race is open to any fitness level. Feeling competitive? We have a race clock at the finish line so you are able to time and track your personal progress. Interested in enjoying a scenic run or walk with friends? Enjoy the views at a comfortable pace. Strollers are welcome if you want to make this a fun event for the entire family!  

Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.
