About This Activity

Come run or walk with the luck of the Irish. Join in the fun of a 5k with family and friend from all over Kalamazoo and beyond.  Make sure to wear your Lucky Green for the Run.  

Nine years ago two men had a vision of a run/walk with people from all over the Kalamazoo area to celebrate the start of spring, celebrate the fun of St. Patrick’s Day and bring people together and focus on their health, while also helping the athletic programs at Hackett and partner grade schools. 

 That run took shape out of the dedication of Brian Malony and Tim Kozal.  They found the volunteers - students, parent and friends to make it a reality.  Each year The Shamrock Run has grown and has become a cherished event for area runners and many others.

On Line Registration Closes Thursday March 17, 2016 @ Midnight.
