Leapin’ Leprechauns – It’s Time to Sign Up for the 4th Annual Shamrock Shuffle
To mark the start of the spring season, the fourth annual Shamrock Shuffle is being held on Saturday, March 18, 2017, two days before the vernal equinox. The days are getting longer, the flowers will be poking their heads out of the ground soon and there’s no time like the present to get up, get out and get moving at Speare Memorial Hospital’s family-friendly, 5K health walk/fun run.
Entertaining the crowd again during registration will be Irish step dancers from Féileacán Irish Dance Academy. They were a big hit at the event last year and really stepped the day off full of Irish cheer and good luck.
Put on your green and join us at the starting line at the Plymouth Regional High School on Saturday, March 18, 2017. Registration/Check-In begins at 8:00 a.m. and the starting gun will go off at 9:00 a.m. The race will wind its way through the streets of Plymouth, NH.
The first 150 registered walkers and runners are guaranteed their requested shirt size and the first 300 finishers will receive a Speare Shamrock Shuffle medal. The event will take place no matter rain, sleet, snow or shine.
**Please Note** If you register in advance, you can check in and pick up your packets from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. in the Speare front lobby, on Friday, March 17th.
The event is not officially timed, as our focus is to encourage community members to take steps toward a more active lifestyle. Be sure to cheer on the participants as they pass by your home or business.
Thank you to our Pot ‘O Gold event sponsor, Medical Reimbursement Specialist for helping to make this community event possible
The registration fee is $10 per person. Children age 5 and under are free, but must be registered. The event will take place rain, shine or snow. Proceeds from the event will support Speare’s community outreach and health education programs.
Whether you are participating or cheering from the sidelines, it’s sure to be a fun morning full of Irish cheer in downtown Plymouth.
