About This Activity

This race has been cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.



The Shamrock Run is a major fundraising tradition for the G.C. Round PTO. We use these funds to provide classroom materials for our students, to assist with educational field trips and to build community spirit through Family Night events. On Saturday, March 21, 2020 the George C. Round PTO will host our 21st Annual Shamrock Run. This event includes a 5k race and a 1 mile fun run/walk. We have an average of 400 people who participate in our event each year, and we aim to add more people every year. The Shamrock Run helps promote community health while supporting the students at George C. Round Elementary School.


Registration Fees:

Fees are as listed on this site until March 18. Registration is possible March 19-21 only through paper registrations. The price will increase to $30 for the 5K, $14 for the 1 mile if a t-shirt is still available and $7 for the 1 mile without a t-shirt.


Race Route and Weather:

Our course is USATF certified (#VA-11013-RT).  Starting and ending at G.C. Round Elementary School, the 5K Run and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk routes will traverse the adjacent neighborhoods and park.  The course involves paved streets and running paths. The race will take place in all weather conditions except those hazardous to health and safety (below 10F and iced surfaces).  Therefore, refunds will not be issued. No pets are allowed on the 5K or 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk routes. Use of baby joggers is allowable in 5K only if baby jogger equipment is designed for racing.  No roller blades, skates, headsets, bikes, or skateboards in either the 5K run or 1 mile fun run/walk.
