Join the 6th Annual Speare Shamrock Shuffle!
Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow, and you know what that means – spring is just around the corner. The days are getting longer, the ice is starting to melt and there’s no time like the present to get up, get out, and get moving with Speare Memorial Hospital’s family-friendly, 5K health walk/fun run.
This low cost, community event was developed in response to an identified community health need for families to have more opportunities to participate in physical, health activities. Speare’s Shamrock Shuffle 5K encourages participants of all ages and abilities to join in walking, running, and/or strolling. The Shamrock Shuffle begins and ends at Plymouth Regional High School and makes its way through the streets of Plymouth, NH. The event is not officially timed, as the focus is to encourage families and all community members to take steps toward a more active lifestyle.
The registration fee is only $10 per person. Children age 5 and under are
