About This Activity

The Shamrockin' Run 8k in New Orleans follows much of the course of the original Crescent City Classic 10k. The 8k course starts at the National World War II Museum and ends at Audubon Park with live music, food and Guinness Beer. This is the perfect course for beginners and seasoned runners alike. Don't miss out on this exciting event! Bagpipe music at every mile mark.  Costumes encouraged! For more information on the Shamrockin' Run 8k visit www.shamrockinrun.com.

IT STARTS WITH THE COURSE … Run through downtown, the beautiful Garden District and Uptown areas of New Orleans and end your run through the oaks in Audubon Park.

Event details and schedule

The 2015 Shamrockin' Run New Orleans will again host the Guinness Challenge. This fast paced, exciting event is open to the first 300 men and 300 women who decide to take the challenge and register for the Guinness Challenge.

Athletes who participate in the Guinness Challenge will be required to drink a 4oz cup of Guinness Beer at designated locations near each mile mark along the 4.97 mile course.  Volunteers and Judges will be on hand to witness and record the beer that is consumed by participants at each location before your official colored beer-stop wristband can be secured to each athlete. Once athletes leave the Guinness Challenge Consumption Zone (GCCZ) they will reenter the course and move to the next location near the next mile mark and will finish in Audubon Park with the rest of the athletes.  Prizes and more information can be found at www.shamrockinrun.com.
