Participants proudly 'rocked the run at the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K

Thousands of runners were welcomed at the “front yard” starting line of the 39th Annual Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K, in Grant Park, on Sunday, March 25th. The race offered runners a unique opportunity to tour Chicago’s Loop, complete with architectural wonders and flat streets. The Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K also featured a two-mile untimed walk, which was ideal for aspiring runners and a great family activity.

After a long, cold snowy season, the Shamrock Shuffle brought the city to life from the throes of winter by kicking off the spring running season and keeping the St. Patrick’s Day spirit alive. The race welcomed participants ranging from Olympic-caliber athletes to those targeting the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, in October, to beginners looking for an enjoyable and festive way to spend a Sunday with friends. The result was a fun-filled race weekend celebrating health, warmer weather and Chicago’s vibrant running community.

With a majority of Shamrock Shufflers coming from Chicago and its surrounding suburbs, the popular race has become a fixture for the city’s running community and one of the most enjoyable ways for participants, spectators and volunteers to celebrate the change of season.
