About This Activity


The 20th Annual Shamrock Run, sponsored by the G. C. Round Elementary PTO, is a great race to start the spring running season in Northern Virginia.  Finish line services and race timing will be provided by Reston Runners.  This race is a major fundraising tradition for the G. C. Round PTO that helps promote community health while supporting the students at G. C. Round Elementary School in Manassas.   The money raised will help provide classroom materials for our students, assist with educational field trips, and build community spirit through PTO events.  

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.
