It’s Time to Sign Up for the 5th Annual Shamrock Shuffle
To celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day and start the spring season off on a healthy foot, the fifth annual Shamrock Shuffle is being held on Saturday, March 17, 2018. 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.
Put on your green and join us at the starting line at the Plymouth Regional High School. Registration/Check-In begins at 9:00 a.m. and the starting gun will go off at 10:00 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 16th.
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.
The registration fee is $10 per person. Children age 5 and under are free but everyone must be registered. 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.
(Please note, there is an additional small processing fee)
Printed forms may be returned in person to the hospital or mailed to:
